It's snow joke -- but the weather has become the focus of the United States' attempts to qualify for the 2014 World Cup.
Costa Rica has asked football's global governing body FIFA to replay their 2014 World Cup qualifying match against the U.S. after it was staged in a snowstorm.

not surprising. that game was ridiculous. Both sides had it really bad. I'm just damn glad the US won.

I doubt anything comes of it.

I'm not a soccer fan. I just thought this was ridiculous. Costa Rica is complaining as if the US team didn't play in the same conditions!

just like it should have been, if this would have been accepted, the US would have a strong case every time they play on the road and have to play on crappy field turf or dirt lots

In Costa Rica's defense their winter temperatures are in the low 100's.
