Canada forward Christine Sinclair will have her FIFA disciplinary case heard Friday over critical comments she made about the referee after losing to the United States at the London Olympics. FIFA says its disciplinary committee will examine charges of ''unsporting behavior'' against Sinclair. Canada lost a dramatic semifinal 4-3 on Aug. 6, with the eventual Olympic champions scoring the winner late in overtime. Sinclair, whose hat trick gave Canada the lead three times, was quoted saying the team felt ''cheated.'' Canada's players were angered that Norwegian referee Christiana Pedersen penalized goalkeeper Erin McLeod for holding the ball too long in the 80th minute. The free kick led to a penalty, which U.S. forward Abby Wambach scored to tie the match 3-3.
