JOHANNESBURG — Slovenia led the United States 2-1 after 60 minutes in their Group C match at the World Cup.

Valter Birsa's left-footed drive from more than 25 yards caught U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard off guard in the 13th minute and Zlatan Ljubijankic's goal in the 42nd gave Slovenia a 2-0 lead at halftime.

Landon Donovan reduced the margin when he lifted a right-footed shot into the roof of the net from a tight angle three minutes after the break.
