REFEREE SAVES GOAL BY UNITED STATES

You gotta be kidding me?!?!  If this was Columbia or any other South American country, this referee would be 6 feet under by now.  What a travesty!!! After going down 2-0, the United States soccer team clawed back to tie the game in the 82nd minute.  Moments later,  it seemed like the U.S. had completed a comeback for the ages when Maurice Edu took a Landon Donovan kick and stuffed it into the net, only to hear referee Koman Coulibaly’s whistle.  No explanation, just no goal.  How could you make that call? At that time, with 4 minutes left in regulation?  This guy needs to be fired.  FIFA better look into this because this is an atrocity. If I didn’t know better, I’d think that this moron had money on the game.  In fact, I wouldn’t bet against it.  Luckily, all U.S. needs to do is beat Algeria and they advance.  But if this costs them the Cup, welcome to the top Mr. Coulibaly, public enemy #1.
