The Canadians were critical of the work of Norwegian referee Christian Pedersen, including Canadian captain Christine Sinclair, who questioned her integrity.“We feel like we didn’t lose.
We feel like it was taken from us,” said Sinclair, who scored all of Canada’s goals in the game. “It’s a shame in a game like that, which is so important, that the ref decided the result before the game started.”
Said FIFA in a statement: “Following the Olympic Women’s semifinal match between Canada and the USA played at Old Trafford on the evening of 6 August, the FIFA Disciplinary Committee is currently analysing incidents that occurred after the conclusion of the match.
“Further information will be provided only after the Committee are in possession of all the elements of the case.”
That certainly makes it sound like Sinclair or other players could face disciplinary action including being suspended for Thursday’s bronze medal game against France
