Costa Rica want USA WC qualifier replay

The Costa Rican Football Federation have called for a replay of their World Cup qualifying loss to USA which was played on Friday.

Jorge Luis Pinto's Ticos were beaten 1-0 by the US in heavy snow in Denver but the federation felt the game should not have gone ahead and now want FIFA to take action.

"We (have) already handed a formal report and complaint within 24 hours post-match, according to the regulations," Fedefutbol president Eduardo Li told the Zona Tecnica football show.

"We attached videos and claimed this match must be played again.

"It was terrible. While the match was being played, at the same time, machines and people came onto the field to clean the lines.

"We fought - we talked to the commissioner (Victor Daniel), who totally rejected our complaint (to postpone the match). These are embarrassing situations we should not accept."
