Snow made conditions for Costa Rica's trip to USA difficult

Snow made conditions for Costa Rica's trip to USA difficult

Heavy snow made conditions in Colorado testing and Costa Rica quickly lodged a complaint in the aftermath of the result, which left them bottom of the final-round standings.

But a FIFA statement read: "FIFA has examined the content of the letter and, taking into consideration... World Cup regulations, has confirmed that the

conditions established in the regulations for an official protest have not been

met by the Costa Rica FA.

"Therefore, the result of the match played on March 22 stands and is considered as valid."

Costa Rican FA president Eduardo Li said of the conditions: "It was terrible. While the match was being played, at the same time, machines and people came on to the field to clean the lines."
