Lets face it .
Costa Rica got jobbed in it’s game agains Mexico. Forget that people write about three red-cards. Let’s talk about the one that changed the game. The one that altered the tactics in front of nearly 70,000 fans at Reliant Stadium.
In the 39th minute referee Terry Vaughan issued a yellow card to Costa Rica’s Allan Aleman, only four minutes later he gave him inexplicably a second yellow, one that I don’t believe he wanted to give but failed to realize he had just booked him four minutes earlier. Univision even had a close up of the numbers he had written down in his book.
Now we all know that Concacaf is still working on being a Federation that is more professional in how it runs its region which in all fairness has it’s challenges. Yet rumors of scandal and corruption continue to dog the federation especially with the involvement of Trinidad and Tobago’s Jack Warner. More on that in a future blog.
The tournament is set up for a U.S./Mexico final all for commercial reasons. In fact Mexico is the most important soccer team in the United States commercially and are represented by the U.S. company Soccer United Marketing who are the owners of MLS teams like the Houston Dynamo. Insert AEG here.
If you want real conspiracy just hop a plan to Italy and start following the Serie “A” as for Costa Rica geting jobbed against Mexico, they did through a poor referee’s decision.
Lets face it .
