Michael Bradley struck a dramatic late equaliser as the United States came from two goals down to draw with Slovenia in a pulsating Group C encounter in Johannesburg.

It seemed Slovenia were heading through to the last 16 when the superb Valter Birsa put them ahead with a curling effort and Zlatan Ljubijankic drilled in to double the lead shortly before half-time.

But USA coach Bob Bradley made a double change at the interval and the move paid immediate dividends, Landon Donavon racing clear on the right and firing high into the roof of the net.

Slovenia were now firmly on the back foot and the US pressure finally told as Michael Bradley, the son of Bob, poked past Samir Handanovic on 82 minutes.

The Americans thought the had won it through substitute Maurice Edu's volley but the strike was harshly ruled out by referee Koman Coulibaly for an alleged pull and the US players were furious.

It was a result that leaves the group wide open ahead of England's meeting with Algeria later.

I'M sure I saw Lord Triesman slipping the Ref A brown envelope Just before Edu scored.

Totally agree there was fook all wrong with the goal mate, the ref was an arse the whole game, hopefully it's his last game.
