USA Rallies Against Slovenia, Nearly Wins

It was arguable the best game thus far at the 2010 World Cup. The Stars and Stripes rallied from down 2 goals and on life support to tie the game in the 82nd minute at Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg. Landon Donovan was masterful and stepped up when needed, scoring the first goal as seen in the picture above. Michael Bradley, son of US coach Bob Bradley, scored the tying goal in the 82nd minute.
But then the United States had a shot to win and get 3 points...

Was the call for offsides? Most likely not, as si.com's Grant Wahl says that the assistant referee did not raise his flag. He says it was probably for a foul. It was a very bizarre call as that leaves the United States with only one point gained instead of three, which still leaves them tied with England who tied Algeria nil-nil.
What will happen next? This is what makes the World Cup so exciting.
