FIFA started an internal investigation to determine whether the Colombian AR Humberto Clavijo’s errors were just human mistakes or something else. Clavijo wrongly disallowed, for offside, two Mexican goals in the match against Cameroon.
He started his refereeing career in 1995 and became FIFA Assistant Referee in 2008. This was the second World Cup for Clavijo, after South Africa 2010, where was an AR for Oscar Ruiz, who is now a member of the FIFA Referees Committee. Being under investigation, Clavijo has been replaced with Christian Lescano (ECU) in Wilmar Roldan’s trio for the next match. (Source: FIFA)
