FIFA's Scandalous Snub of Costa Rica
Should there be any lingering doubts about the total domination that Europe now has over the global game they have surely been put to flight by the announcement of the short list of candidates for the most prestigious individual awards in men's soccer in 2014: the Ballon d'Or (best player), and the FIFA World Coach of the Year.
