Concacaf's Elections/Notes

Mexico appeal after Codesal banned from CONCACAF vote
MEXICO CITY, Feb 25 (Reuters) -

Mexico say they have launched an appeal with FIFA after their former World Cup referee Edgardo Codesal was banned from challenging Jack Warner for the presidency of CONCACAF.

``We knew something like this was going to happen and .. we will ask FIFA for their intervention,'' said Codesal, who referred the 1990 World Cup final between West Germany and Argentina.

Germany won 1-0 with a controversial late penalty while Argentina finished with nine men after Codesal sent off two of their players.

Codesal, who was born in Uruguay and holds Mexican citizenship, said last week that he would run for the CONCACAF presidency at the election in Miami on April 20.

Trinidad's Warner, who is also a vice-president of FIFA, has run CONCACAF since 1990.

CONCACAF said Friday that Codesal's candidature had not been accepted because he was a paid employee of the Confederation but Codesal dismissed the argument.

``Warner and all of them (members of the executive committee) are paid,'' he said.

Mexican Football Federation (FMF) president Alberto de la Torre said: ``On Monday, we will send a letter to FIFA.''

``Mr. Codesal is not paid, he receives expenses and expenses are not payments because if they were, Mr Warner would not be eligible either, as he gets expenses..''''

Mexico and Trinidad were involved in a bitter rivalry last year over a World Cup qualifier in Port of Spain.

Mexico complained against the use of the Queen's Park Oval cricket ground as the venue and said a Trinidad promotional campaign with the slogan ``This is War'' could spark violence.

At the time, Warner put aside his positions as FIFA vice-president and CONCACAF president and came out openly in favour of his own country.

``I have put those two caps aside for two days. Right now I am a Trini. I am a member of the Football Federation and I make no apologies for that,'' he said.

The game ended 1-1 and Mexico went on to qualify while Trinidad finished bottom of the group.

A previous meeting of the two teams, which Mexico won 7-0 at home in 2000, also ended in controversy when Mexican striker Cuauhtemoc Blanco ruptured knee ligaments in a brutal tackle by Trinidad defence Ansel Elcock, who was sent off and banned.
