New ref for Costa Rica-Mexico

MOST COMMENTED

[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.

    A reprimand? Really? Shouldn't he at least have been suspended for one game because that's what he cost Besler with his deliberate deception? This is World Cup qualifying. This is crucial. And Joel Campbell has only been given a slap on the wrist for outrageous behavior. Won't this encourage other players to cheat, too? The FIFA disciplinary committee is a joke.
