    Default Costa Rica launches FIFA appeal after U.S.'s snow success

    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!

    isn't that cute. Tell you what though, the atmosphere when the US goes to Costa Rica for the qualifier is going to be pretty nutty..
