21/10/75, Costa Rica W-O Canada
Note: The game was not played, because Canada did not show up. Canada withdrew from the
 tournament on the morning of 21/10/75, in protest at the suspension of five of their players
 (from a squad of only 14).  A walkover score of 1-0 to Costa Rica was announced. The Costa Rican
 delegation then protested that a walkover score of only 1-0 was detrimental to their chances
 of qualifying from the group, due to the inferior goal-difference compared to Mexico's 8-0 win
 over Canada.  Some sources report the walkover score as 2-0.

Notes: the Argentina delegation later demanded the disqualification of the referee, claiming he
 had "inexplicably" disallowed a goal by Silva, and sent off Valencia when in fact it was
 Valencia who had been fouled by a Brazilian player.  Instead the authorities appointed the 
 same referee for Argentina's next match vs Bolivia, in which he sent off two Bolivian players.

Referee: Arturo Iturralde (Argentina) 
Notes: The match was abandoned at 108' due to floodlight failure. After some delay, it was 
 announced that the gold medal would be shared, and the players received gold medals on the pitch.
 The following day, the organizing committee (after consulting FIFA) announced that the game
 should be replayed on 29/10/75. However, the Brazilian delegation had already arranged to
 return to Brazil. The Brazilians argued that a replay was impossible, as the Panamerican Games
 had already officially closed, and because the players were amateurs, it was impossible to
 arrange extra leave to remain in Mexico for a replay. The game was also temporarily interrupted
 for eight minutes during the first period of extra time after a spectator entered the field
 waving a Mexican flag.
