Update: Offical Change

The official for the Mexico game on Wednesday has been changed! ussoccer.com reports:

U.S. Soccer has been informed of a change in the referee crew that will officiate Wednesday’s match.  Roberto Moreno of Panama will now run the middle, replacing Joel Aguilar of El Salvador.  Fans who followed the Gold Cup will remember that Aguilar served as the referee in the 1-1 draw between Mexico and Panama from the group phase in which Mexico coach Javier Aguierre and Panama midfielder Ricardo Phillips were sent off, with the Mexican manager receiving a subsequent three-match ban from the sidelines.
You would think that this is a good change for the US, as Aguierre kicked the Panama player and there is now a ref from Panama.  Also the same things apply that Panama has a better chance to get in through the 4th spot than passing the US…

    Haha this could be cool if the panamanian ref is looking for some revenge. Also it would help because he possibly won’t be biased in favor of Mexico.

    BTW I thought Panama didn’t make it to this round of qualifying.
