[HEXAGONAL COUNTDOWN] Joel Campbell got off with a reprimand for duping the Mexican refereeing crew into issuing Matt Besler a yellow card in the Costa Rica-USA qualifier (Video: @5:38) that kept the Sporting Kansas City defender out of the USA-Mexico game.
The FIFA disciplinary committee slapped the Costa Rican federation with a $11,000 fine for crowd problems -- included whistling the U.S. national
anthem -- but did not order the Ticos to play their final qualifier against Mexico at the Estadio Nacional behind closed doors.
But that match will have a new referee as designee,
Surinamese official Enrico Winjgaarde, pulled out for "personal reasons."
Winjgaarde and his assistant, Ramon
Louisville, will be replaced by Guatemalan referee Walter Lopez in the middle, and his brother, Gerson Lopez, as
one of the assistants.
