Earlier today we had heard FIFA would need more time before deciding the punishment – if any – for comments made by Canadian coach John Herdman, Captain Christine Sinclair and others after Canada’s devastating extra time loss to the United States on Monday.
Seems like they’ll need at least a day more. From the CBC:
A FIFA spokesman said Wednesday that “further investigation will be needed” by the organization’s disciplinary committee, and that no decision will be made before the bronze-medal match against France on Thursday.
Based on FIFA’s prior track record, expect the penalties to be handed down sometime before hell freezes over. Clowns.
