USA 2 Slovenia 2

An exciting match between a Slovenian side that plays attractive attacking football and a USA that not only battles but also puts together some excellent passing moves.

Slovenia were two up by 42’. Valter Birsa fired his shot into the top left-hand corner of Howard’s goal on 25’. The USA started to grow – Handanovic saved a Torres free kick and just as the USA was piling on the pressure, Slovenia counter-attacked. Novakovic passed to Ljubijankic, who made it 2-0 on 42’.

In the second half, the USA applied more pressure. On 48’, 2-1. Landon Donovan (FIFA man of the match). The USA continued, Handanovic saving from Altidore and Bradley, before on 80’, USA coach Bob Bradley brought on forward Gomez for defender Onyewu and two minutes later, the coach’s son Michael Bradley scored the equaliser.

In the last minutes Edu put the ball in the net (disallowed), Novakovic headed just wide and Radosavljevic saw his searing shot saved by Howard.

USA: Howard, Bocanegra, Bradley, Onyewu (Gomez), Cherundolo, Dempsey, Donovan, Demerit, Torres (Edu), Altidore, Findley (Feilhaber)

Slovenia: Handanovic, Breko, Suler, César, Koren, Ljubijankic (Pecnic, Komac), Birsa (Dedic), Novakovic, Jokic, Kirm, Radosavljevic
