Perhaps Mr Pedersen and his daughter should sit down together and watch the game then she could indicate to him when she warned the Canadian 'keeper.
I would then suggest that they obtain a copy of the publication available here:-
and then read the section on page 125 that deals with the subject of kicking the ball directly at an opponent when taking a free kick. In case they are in any doubt the FIFA definitions of 'careless','reckless' and 'using excessive force' are given on page 111 of the above publication.
Perhaps then Mr Pedersen could explain why the Canadians were not awarded a free kick for the manner in which the US free kick was taken

The stupid b*&^c that refereed that game was actually a man if you look closely. And everyone, including numerous Americans who hav commented on here, knows that we were screwed again by both the IOC and FIFA. I am just not sure how players on the US can sit there and smile on the podium when they know very well they should have been playing for a bronze medal and NOT a gold. Especially that loud-mouth, outspoken tramp Hope Solo who could been seen laughing during the national anthem of the medal ceremony. She is a disgrace to the game of a soccer with her poor sportsmanship and criticism of fellow players and even American commentators. Not sure why the American coach puts up with her because she had a lousy tournament and is really not that good.
