Report: FIFA may ax U.S.-Slovenia ref from WC - ESPN Soccernet
Malian referee Koman Coulibaly, criticized for disallowing a potentially U.S.-winning goal off a free kick in Friday’s U.S.-Slovenia World Cup clash, may be dropped by FIFA for the rest of the World Cup, according to a Yahoo! Sports report.
Citing a FIFA source, the report says Coulibaly is poised to face an expedited performance review from the refereeing committee of world football’s governing body. Officials plan to review footage on Saturday from the Group C, 2-2 draw to evaluate Coulibaly’s performance after several U.S. players blasted his handling of the match, Yahoo said.
