"Well he kicked out at me after the ball," Altidore said. "I thought it was really soft. I just went up to him, I didn't touch his face, I didn't put my hands up. It's just CONCACAF at the end of the day — stupid things like that happen. It's pretty disgraceful because I didn't put my hands up on him, I didn't do anything, he goes down grabbing something.

"Tempers are flying and just ridiculous calls like that happen. Nothing happened, there's nothing there."

The yellow card was Altidore's second of the qualifying cycle, meaning he'll be suspended for the Americans' trip to face Honduras on Tuesday in San Pedro Sula.

Altidore disputes suspension - triggering yellow card : ‘ It ’ s pretty disgraceful ’. September 2, 2017 By: Sports King. The forward was not happy with referee John Pitti or Costa Rica’s Johan Venegas after being booked late in the U.S. national team’s 2-0 loss Friday.

Altidore disputes suspension - triggering yellow card : ' It ' s pretty disgraceful '. As Costa Rica earned a 2-0 triumph Friday, marking its first World Cup qualifying win on American soil since 1985, Navas made it clear: He's the most influential X-factor CONCACAF has to offer.

It wasn't the only call from Pitti that left the U.S. feeling aggrieved: Altidore also appealed for a penalty after a collision with Costa Rica defender Kendall Waston in the first half, and there were questions of a potential handball by Bryan Ruiz in the buildup to the first of Marco Urena's two strikes.

"Key decisions — that's the game, right?" Altidore said. "Key moments where you have to rely on the referee's judgment. He didn't go our way tonight with some of those calls."
