— What an incredible comeback. Coming from two goals down to earn a point is quite the accomplishment, but…
— The ref blew it. Mali’s Koman Coulibaly was shaky all match and negated Maurice Edu’s winner with a phantom call. Would’ve been one of the shining moments in USMNT history.
— The U.S. could’ve won the group. Now Bob Bradley’s side could need help from England on the final day to get through. While Germany isn’t a lock to win Group D, the round of 16 draw is much more favorable against someone else.
— Gooch wasn’t good. Played a role in each of the goals conceded. Also was way too quick to send the ball long up the field, inaccurately at that.
— Slovenia isn’t bad. The country of two million has put together a decent side. Scored both goals well and neither was a fluke. Could battle England in the final group-stage match.
— Who looked good? No one in the first half. After halftime Howard, Donovan, Altidore and Bradley definitely took charge.
— Who looked bad? The guys taken off. Torres and Findley. And many were calling for Torres to start in this one. He clearly wasn’t ready.
— Better beat Algeria…
