USA public, welcome to the world of football! Teams and countries have to live with these mistakes, nothing will be done afterwards, you'll be lucky to get an apology from the ref.?

Should be 3-2. They probably shouldn't continue saying that refs name on TV for his own safety. There are people far more into this than I that would actually do something about it.

This result really helps England in the group.

Fantastic comeback from the USA, one of the best games I've seen all week!

Ehh, not a big deal. There are many, many bad calls in sports all the time.

An ump just cost someone a perfect game a couple of weeks ago on an awful call. Hes not dead.

USA obviously proved they deserve to be there more than Slovenia. Call me what you, but we had more possession, our chances were they - they got lucky overall. Great first strike by

Slovenia but overall USA showed much more today to deserve the win, the 3 points, and a bit of respect. Terrible call.

We have baseball. The epitome of bad officiating.

If I'm doing my math correctly, England wins both of its two games and USA beats Algeria, and both US and England advance, correct?

welcome to the real sports world where everything high in statistics don't always translate to win.

SVN had 49% possession to USA's 51%

SVN is ranked 25th, USA is ranked 14th

SVN commited 15 fouls with 4 yellow cards, to USA's 18 fouls with 1 yellow card.

Amazing how the team that doesn't win / draws (though American newspapers somehow seem to think that a draw = win), always blames the ref, the ball, claims the other team got lucky eh?

--

Otherwise, great game by both teams and quite an amazing comeback for USA.

The NBA isn't a sport. Its a glorified exhibition.

College Basketball officiating is generally pretty good.

The call in the box was dreadful, you can't deny that.

USA newspapers aren't retarded. I assume you mean the headline from the USA v England game...they were just referring to the fact that England was heavily favored and we were able to draw.

I dunno, from what I was seeing it looked like the whistle got blown before the ball passed the line. Could it have been a bad / unlucky call? Certainly, but they do happen all the time.

However, the ref's decision is final.

Football (soccer) doesn't seem to use technology as much as other sports do, and I really hope in the future they go invest more in it since it will only make referee decisions more accurate and fair.

USA newspapers aren't retarded.

Didn't say that now did I? But a draw is still not a win, regardless of how favored one team is. It was an exaggeration and thats that.

Statistics != win. Uruguay beat South Africa 3 - 0, yet Uruguay had 49% of the possession vs. RSA's 51%.

Oh totally, this world cup has been nothing but proof of that. But I was just referring to Alladaskill's point about USA deserving to win, and SVN being lucky.

From what it looked like, both teams were pretty even and both played well. USA's comeback was certainly impressive, probably even the best in the 2010WC so far, but that doesn't mean SVN's play was just pure luck.

Good comeback for the USA. They managed to get at least a point from this. A loss would have been the end. While the refs had some bad calls, the USA team needs to finish and not waste chances.
