About M.E. myself and I

I have been an M.E. sufferer for a long time now, but sports replay gaming is an easy hobby for me to enjoy. Originally from Canvey Island, Essex, I was introduced to replay gaming a few years ago, leading to my first purchase: Cricket World. Most sports I share will be common, but there are some more obscure replays thrown in. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to say hello! - Chris

Final Score - WC2010 Group C, Slovenia vs USA

Friday 18th June 2010,  Ellis Park Stadium, Johannesburg - Att. 45,573
Referee: Koman Coulibaly (Mali)

LINEUPS
Slovenia (442): Handanovic, Brecko, Jokic (Illic 75'), Suler, Cesar, Radosavijevic, Koren, Birsa, Ljubijankic (Pecnik 85'), Novakovic, Kirm (Stevanovic 58')
USA (442): Howard, Cherundolo, Bocanegra, Demerit, Onyewu (Torres 61'), Bradley, Edu, Donovan, Altidore, Findley (Spector 85'), Dempsey (Gomez 65')

The two qualifying places are still all to play for after this physical affair that saw a player from each side receive their marching orders from Mr Coulibaly. The Americans were good for their win as they stifled the Slovenian attacks but Zlatan Ljubijankic was hardest to contain. His second half cross for Novakovic was headed wide, and his own first half effort was just wide of the post.

The United States had much of the play throughout and should have perhaps won by more than the single Donovan goal when, prior to the breakthrough late in the half, Altidore, Edu, and the goalscorer himself were denied by Handonovic.

The game turned into a defensive battle after the interval with very few chances for both teams, even when both sides were down to ten men creating a little more space on the park. Both Radosavijevic and Bocanegra will be suspended for the final group matches after they picked up a pair of yellow cards either side of halftime.
