WTF? The United States thought it had scored the potential game-winning goal when Maurice Edu knocked home Landon Donovan's free kick in the 86th minute to break a 2-2 tie.
But referee Koman Coulibaly, Mali's answer to Mr. Magoo, called a foul on defender Carlos Bocanegra, who had his arms around Slovenia substitute Jejc Pecnik and was preventing him from jumping for the ball.
Magoo conveniently missed two American players being held and grabbed in different parts of the penalty area by Slovenian players.
So, Did Referee Koman Coulibaly Rob US of World Cup Win? Yes, but it's gonna take more than a low life referee to keep the US out of the finlas!
