Costa Rica's soccer federation said Wednesday it won't take any immediate measures over national team coach Paulo Wanchope's involvement in a fistfight in Panama on Tuesday, but will investigate it.

Wanchope was watching his country's under-23 team play in Panama on Tuesday when the scuffle broke out.

Costa Rica's soccer federation said in a statement that it was waiting to compile all the information available before commenting on the incident. "We must gather the largest possible amount of information, in order to proceed with maximum responsibility and offer the best statement," the statement said.

Video of the incident shows Wanchope in an angry exchange with another man at the stadium.
