We watched the game, or most of it via streaming video. What gets me is, that Slovenia started really strong and after the 2nd half seems they lost their way or the USA team got a smarter withing few minutes. We were thinking the US it was going to be buried by them. So early in the game 2-0.

All ends on a tied score. I do not know what was with the referee, but we have to look also his side of the story.
We have multiple views and replays, he does not. But that is part of Football game.

I always have the impression that Football is a 3 Team game, the teams that kick the ball around and the referee is a one man team that nobody likes (unless it makes a call in favor of your team :lol: )

Yes talk about suprise! Spain can still win the whole thing though, they played well. Germany lost against Serbia too but thei played well to with 10 men most of the time.
