U.S.-Slovenia stolen match proves why soccer needs tech

Jesus Diaz of Gizmodo writes: "I'm Spanish. I've been watching soccer — footbal — all my life, and I always wondered why the hell don't they use technology to solve one of the biggest problems of this game: Referees making bad calls. Like in the U.S.-Slovenia game.

The fact is that, no matter how many times I watch that Maurice Edu's goal, referee Koman Coulibaly's decision to cancel a perfectly legal goal seems inexplicable. Donovan curled the freekick perfectly, and Edu blasted it inside Slovenia's door with ease. That's what happened.

There was no offside, and there were no fouls except the Slovenians trying to grab every single American player in the box. In other words, Coulibaly's call was completely wrong, and it took three points away from the USA team. That's very bad for the competition."

This game was heart stopping and heart breaking...A great game with a BS NBA'esque bad call that JOBBED the US. They need to do something to have a way to fix this type of crap, I am sure the Ireland team would agree with this article too after that hand ball against France (That wasn't called resulting in the winning goal) that kept them out of the cup.
