Official FIFA Play-by-Play says the whistle was for a foul committed by Maurice Edu. He didnt committ a foul. Watch at the 4-5 second mark, (slow mo angle at 20 seconds and close up at 35) you can see Edu delays his run and is the last player to break towards goal from just inside the top of the box. The defender falls asleep and Edu runs right by him. Clean Goal. (not the best quality, but the best I can find right now)
