Referee Koman Coulibay, who made the controversial decision to disallow a United States goal against Slovenia, says he does not believe he’ll be refereeing any more games in the 2010 World Cup.

In an exclusive interview with ESPN Radio, Coulibay says, “No, I don’t believe I’m going to be refereeing another game. We have been booked in the first round, and there were many referees. And I don’t count on having another game. But I will be staying here, and if there’s any possibility, of course, I will be very happy.”

When Coulibay was asked to explain why Maurice Edu’s goal was disallowed, the referee from Mali was non-committal. “I am not ready to tell the explanation,” says Coulibay. “What I did is that I gave to the refereeing commission the evaluation of the game, and if you have any questions, you ask them.”
