Remember When: U.S. vs Slovenia at South Africa 2010

The U.S. plays Slovenia in an international friendly tomorrow at noon (ESPN2). With that in mind, let’s take a look back at their World Cup Group C meeting back in the summer of 2010.

The tale-of-two-halves cliché was in full, maddening effect in this one, as the U.S. produced an awful first 45 minutes to go down 2-0, then rallied furiously after the break. They tied it on Michael Bradley‘s dramatic 82nd-minute equalizer, and then, well—”Ko-man Cou-libaly!”

The highlights:

The Americans will be looking to better their 1-4-1 record under new coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who has seen his side score just two goals in six games.
