WORLD CUP Slovenia vs USA

Maurice Edu kicked the ball into the net just before the 86th minute. American players jumped around wildly, thinking they had capped a historic comeback, turning a two-goal, first-half deficit into a 3-2 victory over Slovenia but referee Koman Coulibaly of Mali had called it off.

Perhaps Coulibaly will never explain himself. Perhaps it remains one of those unsolved soccer mysteries.

Donovan and Michael Bradley scored second-half goals that did count, and U.S. hopes to reach the World Cup’s second round remained alive with a 2-2 tie Friday night.
