SLOVE­NIA ............................ 2 USA....................................... 2

The United States res­cued their World Cup hopes with a sec­ond-half come­back against Slove­nia at el­lis Park.

Slove­nia looked on course to se­cure a last 16 berth thanks to goals from Val­ter Birsa and Zla­tan Lju­bi­jan­kic in the first 45 min­utes but a Lan­don Dono­van goal early in the sec­ond pe­riod gave the USA be­lief.

They re­fused to give up on the game and Michael Bradley, son of coach Bob, grabbed the lev­eller in the 82nd minute af­ter rac­ing into the box to turn in a Jozy Alti­dore nod-down and the Amer­i­cans had a fur­ther goal from Mau­rice edu dis­al­lowed, ap­par­ently for some shirt-pulling in the box.

It leaves all to play for in Group C go­ing into the fi­nal round of matches.
