I am not entirely sure what you are saying here, but do u mean the engine stalls as you slow down? I have been a Ford dealer tech for 25 years and this is what i recommend, have the system tested for any diagnotic trouble codes, repair any problems found there then clean the inside of the MAF sensor (locted in the engine air intake hose) and do the following procedure.
Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Based on your Brief Description (and having no other problems) its, acting like the idle air control valve is carbon fouled and or sticking, when the vehicle rpms start to drop the iac picks up so the vehicle wont stall, also inspect the throttle plate behind the intake hose to see if any carbon is around the plate.Thanks for using FixYa!!

Find the EGR valve on the intake and locate the vacuum hose that is connected to it. Start the engine cold and as it warms up, pull the hose off and if it idles and drives fine, the EGR valve is bad and needs to be replaced. Please rate me on this answer.

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Check the O2 sensor wiring just above the right axle, sometimes it comes loose and rubs on the axle.
