"We will pay the fine, yes. But they ought to sanction the rest of the countries that have committed the same mistake."

-- Costa Rican soccer federation president Eduardo Li on possible sanctions from FIFA because Tico fans booed the U.S. national anthem before the World Cup qualifying game last Friday. (Tico Times)

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't they also boo Dempsey's attempt at the "Fair Play" pregame statement ?

    Used to have a lot of respect for Costa Rica and its fans. Used to, but they apparently have slumped to a pretty low level, known as CLASSLESS! Most Costa Ricans are great people but these particular fans are an embarrassment to their country and football fans all over the world who appreciate and understand the beautiful game. Poor response from their soccer federation president. Love to kick their butts in Brazil. Go USA!!
