Heavy blizzard can't stop football match
In a heavy snow storm at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, the United States battled to a 1-0 win over Costa Rica with Clint Dempsey's 16th minute goal securing victory in the CONCACAF World Cup qualifier on 22 March 2013. The game looked to be in doubt when the referee halted play in the 55th minute but after consultation and a few minutes of clearing the touchlines of snow, the match resumed. The game though was frequently interrupted by match officials coming on to try to clear the snow to make the pitch markings visible. The Costa Rican Football Federation on 25 March demanded the qualifier must be replayed after the match took place in blizzard conditions, and even demanded ‘disciplinary action’ against the match commissioner Victor Daniel and referee Joel Aguilar.
