So, the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup has reached the knockout stage … and … well … CONCACAF HAS GONE FULL CONCACAF.

What I mean is that the international CONCACAF federation has a history of highly-questionable decisions late in massively-important games. Whether they were warranted or not, i’ll leave that up to you…

Anyways, after 90 minutes of regulation play: Quarterfinals fixture between Mexico and Costa Rica remained scoreless. One fifteen minute extra time period passed, no score. 14 of the 15 minutes of the second extra time period elapsed, seconds away from penalty kicks, when this happened…

THE REFS CALLED THAT A FOUL IN THE 120TH MINUTE OF A SCORELESS TIE AND AWARDED MEXICO A PENALTY.

The result…

GOLAZO.

Death, Taxes, Miguel Herrera going absolutely HAM.

Costa Rica’s President does NOT sound pleased with the ref’s decision.

And as a neutral bystander, I can genuinely say: I don’t blame him…
