WORLD CUP: US Rallies to Tie Slovenia
JOHANNESBURG (AP) -- The United States rallied from a two-goal halftime deficit on goals by Landon Donovan and Michael Bradley to tie Slovenia 2-2 in their Group C match Friday.

Bradley, the coach's son, scored in the 82nd minute after picking up Jozy Altidore's header. Landon Donovan had made it 2-1 with a hard right-footed shot into the roof of the net from a tight angle three minutes after the break.

Valter Birsa and Zlatan Ljubijankic scored for Slovenia in the first half.

Birsa's left-footed drive from more than 25 yards caught U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard off-guard in the 13th minute and Ljubijankic scored on a fast break as the Americans' defense was caught napping.

Slovenia has four points in the group and the Americans have two.
