Gold Cup 2015 - Referee Appointments for the Quarterfinals

The North- and Central American and Caribbean football association - CONCACAF - is not really throwing around information on the Gold Cup Referee Appointments. Thanks to our South American co-bloggers Árbitro Internacional as well as CONCACAFReferee's Blog, the assignments for the quarterfinal ties are almost completely known though. Among others, Henry Bejarano of Costa Rica will be the man in the middle of the politically historical duel between the United States and Cuba.

    Leave it to a "PRO" and Peter Walton disciple (Eric Boria) to do CONCACAF's dirty work. Mexico moves on and thus they ensure a full stadium in Atlanta. Walter Lopez had no intention on inventing anything, yet Boria wanted to become famous and make a name for himself.

    Bravo Eric Boria, for you have shown why Peter Walton and PRO assign such poor referee's to MLS.

      Is there evidence showing Boria made the call? From the US broadcast it looked like all he did was not advise Lopez to overturn it.

      If Walter Lopez had made the call, the Costa Rican would have hounded him. However they went after Boria. This tells me that Boria made the call. Lopez was content with letting time run out and taking the game to kicks from the mark. But then Boria stuck his nose where it didn't belong.

    Mexico got a penalty for this in the 122nd minute.

    1. Clearly Boria's call. If he considered this light push as EFFECTIVE enough to bring down the attacker, the call is brave and nothing else. From the replay angle from the side, exactly where Boria was positioned, I share his view: it looked effective and then I don't know why the circumstance that we are in the penalty area and in the 122nd minute should change that. In the end, for me this decision is ok, although looking soft and harsh and maybe wrong at first glance - my view. But of course, no doubt, you actually need 110% clear penalties in such game scenarios (context, minute, competition).

      From UEFA perspective: normally he should have sent the defender off for DOGSO, as it was more than likely that the attacker would otherwise have had a huge and obvious scoring opportunity, very likely controlling the ball.

    Highlights say that there were other two penalty appeals by Mexico.
    One, two or three, a whistle can be justified in one situation.

    1. USA-JAM for Aguilar seems to be sure. I cannot imagine a Costa Rican either in PAN-MEX (otherwise Bejarano would deserve it) - same goes for a 2nd Salvadorian. So either Geiger's nationality is no problem for CONCACAF, or Gantar is chosen. Quesada for the final then.

      Alternatively, Lopez for USA-JAM and Aguilar for PAN-MEX (not realistic, as Panama would reject him).

      This competition pattern shows that they should have chosen Wijngaarde as a more flexible official.

      USA-JAM: Aguilar, Zumba, Ramirez, Bejarano
      PAN-MEX: Geiger, Briere, Lopez, Gantar (if USA's semifinal presence is no problem, otherwise Gantar as ref with Bonilla as 4th).

      For the final I would choose Quesada-L.Leal-Jara-Rodriguez

    2. Wijngaarde is no longer a FIFA referee. He's not on the 2015 list.

    3. I have read on a website from Suriname, that Wijngaarde does not agree with the policy of the SVB, and that he has stopped refereeing mostly because of that. (http://obsession-magazine.nl/?p=67166)
