Mexican soccer fans, who felt their team got robbed by a controversial Dutch penalty kick in the 2014 World Cup, now know what it feels like to be on the other side.
On Sunday, Mexico advanced to the Gold Cup semifinals with a 1-0 win over Costa Rica after an extremely questionable call in the 124th minute. Mexican forward Oribe Peralta went up for a cross and the referee ruled he was fouled by Costa Rican player Roy Miller. Replays indicate it was a bad call, and within minutes of the call, "NoEraPenal'' (it was not a penalty) was trending on Twitter.
US midfielder Alejandro Bedoya didn't hide his feelings about the call. He tweeted: "Unbelievable. Disgraceful. All you can do is laugh. What. A. Joke.''
Mexico plays Panama Wednesday at 9 p.m., and the USA plays Jamaica at 6.
