USA vs Slovenia World Cup 2010: Time and Live Score

USA and Slovenia are going to face each other on 18 June at the Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg. In Group C, this is going to be the second match for both teams. Both sides are full of confidence following their excellent performance in their opening matches.


The match kicks off at 14:00 GMT and 16:00 local time. In USA, the match begins at 10:00 (New York time) and at 07:00 (California time). Football fans in Algeria can watch the match from 15:00.

Live Score

Live updates of the match are available in the following website address:

Slovenia picked up full 3 points against Algeria, while USA held favorite England to a 1-1 draw. A victory over USA would ensure Slovenia’s progress to the next stage, while a draw would also keep them in contention for clinching a place in the Round of 16.

USA would like to continue the momentum achieved through an excellent show against England in the Slovenia math too, but they may also feel some pressure going into the match. The Americans know it very well that any result other than a win over Slovenia would come as a big blow to their hopes of progressing to the next round. Even a draw would leave them with 2 points from 2 games, a condition USA would hate to be in.

Slovenia played attacking football against Algeria and got the goal through captain Robert Koren. Their defense is very strong, while their midfield is led by Koren. In attack, they have a solid goal scorer like Novakovič.

USA would relish putting on another impressive show. They have a very strong midfield featuring Landon Donovan and Clint Dempsey, while Altidore would lead USA’s front line. Right back Cherundolo created many problems for England by going forward on the right wing. They also have a very strong defense in the presence of Onyewu and Bocanegra.

There are many who believe USA is favorite, but one should also remember that stronger teams never always win the matches.
