Sonny Side of Sports: Costa Rica vs. New Zealand in FIFA World Cup Football, World Championships News & More
Costa Rica beat 10-man New Zealand Monday, 1-0, to earn the last place in the 32-team FIFA World Cup football tournament in November. Joel Campbell (L) scored the goal in the third minute of the intercontinental playoff, which was held in World Cup host country Qatar. New Zealand's head coach, Danny Hay, criticized the officiating, and we'll hear his comments on Wednesday's show. New Zealand had an equalizing goal disallowed by video review, and another video review led to a 69th minute red card for Kosta Barbarouses. Also on Wednesday's program, Athletics Federation of Nigeria Technical Director Samuel Onikeku talks about next month's world championships and the recent African Athletics Championships.
