So I guess you are saying it should have been a PK or a Goal, you are correct.

The most obvious was bradley getting bearhugged.

What about Altidore and his constant flopping all day?

Why is it only bad when the ref makes questionable calls against the USA?

taking away that goal was more than questionable.

What does Altidores flops have to do with that?

Nice deflection.

We need to cut off humanitarian aid to Mali - those refs where horrendous!!!

That should have been a goal counted + a penalty kick instead of offsides

I bet if Altidore wasnt flopping all day, forcing him to make calls, he wouldnt have been that quick to call off that set play.

I'm not usually one to defend referees but we need to remember that the ref does not have the benefit of slow motion replay.

That said, I think this one made some strange decisions and especially the one denying Edu's goal.

ps. Edu getting into the penalty box and sneaking a goal does not surprise me. He has done the same for Rangers. Excellent holding midfielder who can also go forward.
