Joel Campbell Dive
The United States’ official YouTube channel have released new field camera footage of the American’s 3-1 defeat in Costa Rica last weekend, and one clip on the video isn’t pretty watching for Arsenal striker Joel Campbell.
In the 2013-2014 season, he found himself at Olympiakos, where he made 32 appearances and scored 8 goals, including a famous effort against Manchester United in the Champions League Round of 16.
Joel Nathaniel Campbell Samuels ( pronounced: [ʒoˈel ˈkambel] ; born 26 June 1992) is a Costa Rican professional footballer who plays for Portuguese club Sporting Clube de Portugal , on loan from Arsenal , and the Costa Rica national team . Campbell plays as a forward but can also be deployed on the wings .
Campbell, currently on loan at Greek side Olympiakos, dropped the ground and rolled around the floor during the September 6 match in San Jose after Matt Besler accidentally stepped on his foot.
Campbell, currently on loan at Greek club Olympiakos, has been punished for an incident in Costa Rica's World Cup qualifier with the USA where he earned defender Matt Besler a yellow card.
Defender Matt Besler will miss the United States men’s national team’s biggest game of the year Tuesday against rival Mexico thanks to a cynical dive by Costa Rican forward Joel Campbell. During Friday’s 3-1 loss to Costa Rica, Besler picked up the yellow card after Campbell fell to the turf, but new field-level video proves that the referee made a major error in handing out punishment to Besler.
