Koman Coulibay: The World Cup referee who blew a major call in the USA-Slovenia game spoke to ESPN. “ESPN: Are you prepared to offer an explanation as to why the goal was not allowed by Maurice Edu? Coulibaly: I am not ready to tell the explanation. What I did is that I gave to the refereeing commission the evaluation of the game, and if you have any questions, you ask them.” Yeah, yeah, we know – the missed call wasn’t that big of a deal because the USA advanced anyway. Still, why not just offer an explanation? Sepp Blatter is a fool. It’s as if his only objective in this World Cup is to stir up controversy. [ESPN Media Zone]
