FIFA Considers Action Against Canada Over Referee Comments
As if that loss wasn't hard enough already

FIFA is considering disciplinary action over blistering comments by Canada’s coach and players about the referee after their semifinals loss to the United States in the Olympic women’s football tournament.

FIFA says its disciplinary panel is “analyzing incidents that occurred after” Canada’s 4-3 defeat after extra time on Monday. Canada forward Christine Sinclair later said, “The ref decided the result before the game started… She’ll (the referee) have to sleep in bed tonight after watching the replays. She’s got that to live with.”

The Canadians were upset by an indirect free kick awarded against goalkeeper Erin McLeod for holding the ball too long late in normal time– a call that is all but unheard of in professional soccer.

The resulting passage of play saw the Americans get a penalty which Abby Wambach scored to equalize at 3-3. [Huffington Post]
