Questionable handball in box awarded to CRC early in the match. Ref carded CRC attacker after McKenna tripped him after clearing a ball. Ref likely shielded by the play. McKenna should have been carderd but the CRC guy likely got it for persistent embellishment. In the 65th minute, ref should have gone straight to red on a blatant & late tackle from behind by CAN. Ref's not bad in this one, but the players' behavior makes me think this could get nasty. Keep waiting for this one to get out of control. Was rooting for underdog Canadians but they seem to do everything they can to try and come back in this game as well as prevent from going down 2-0. Long stretch of dirty play by our northern neighbors. Costa Rica not much better. Maybe the players will finally settle down again, but I doubt it. Would be worse if CAN Center Def McKenna (?) hadn't received a card for dissent due to the aforementioned PK. He's still playing enforcer out there, but he's already got the caution holding him back somewhat. Think the ref might be looking to give an 'equalizer' if Canada can get it dangerously in the attacking third. Hey, dangerous freekick at 73rd minute but Canada puts it into the wall. Oh, 78th minute, ref sends a CRC guy off the field for wearing a bracelet or something. Comes back in after a minute at the next stoppage. Never seen that before at this level. Wow. What? Don't they check the players in prior to the match? McKenna goes out on second yellow! in 80th minute. Interesting. He made no attempt to play the ball and looked right at his opponent and stuck his leg/cleat in the other guy's knee on a half-arsed jump ball. Regret the dissent now? Time for Costa Rica to play rough now and put CAN away I guess. Late FK for CAN in injury time (94th minute). Ref not bad. Just typical.
