USA Slovenia FIFA World Cup Action

USA Slovenia FIFA World Cup Action

The anticipated match up between the USA and Slovenia, though thrilling, ended in a 2:2 draw today. For anyone who thinks soccer is a pansy sport, you should’ve been watching this game! Slovenia was handed 4 yellow cards, and deserved each and every one. For such a small, peaceful country, they certainly know how to throw some punches. They had to make their mark on the International stage somehow (Voichich who?.).

With today’s draw, the US ranks 14, and Slovenia steps up to 25. They’re creeping up on us fellas!! The game wasn’t a slow, back and forth battle like we may be used to seeing at this level. The US was actually down 2 0 at one point, clawing to get back to a tie. Thanks to 2 veteran leaders on the squad, Landon Donovan and Michael Bradley, who scored a goal a piece in the second half, the US was able to bring the game back into their hands.

But the excitement doesn’t end there! Oh no! With only minutes left in the game, the US scores a goal by penalty shot that was taken back by the umpire!!! In one of the worst calls I’ve ever seen this is where the replay feature in American Football comes in incredibly handy!
