Joel Campbell warned by FIFA for horror dive…
Arsenal striker Joel Campbell, currently on loan at Olympiakos, has been sanctioned by FIFA following an outrageous dive in September.
The pacey striker was playing for Costa Rica against the USA, and conned the referee into giving defender Matt Besler a yellow card.
A FIFA spokesman said: “We can confirm that the FIFA disciplinary committee has sanctioned the player Joel Campbell of Costa Rica with a reprimand for breaching art. 57 of the FIFA disciplinary code.”
Article 57 focuses on players “who violate the principles of fair play or whose behaviour is otherwise unsporting”.
