Fans were out of control during the USMNT’s 3-2 Sunday win over Mexico.
During the CONCACAF Nations League final in Denver, the game had to be paused because of gay slurs being chanted and then fans proceeded to throw stuff after America locked up the victory off of a Christian Pulisic penalty kick, according to ESPN.

USMNT player Giovanni Reyna was drilled in the face and was down for several minutes.

There was also a moment when players from both squads got into a confrontation as all hell was breaking loose on the field.

All the way around, a pathetic situation from the fans. By multiple accounts, it seems like fans of Mexico were the ones who started this nonsense after America won the game.

If you don’t like getting your butt kicked by America, then don’t lose the game. You don’t want to watch us dance, then don’t let us score.
You know what you don’t do? You don’t start throwing bottles at people. That’s a great way for things to head south on you.
If that clip of Reyna getting hit by something thrown from the fans doesn’t motivate you to be the BEST in the region then you are doing the wrong thing. That SHIT has no place in sports and use it EVERY a single time to help you go the extra yard.
BABY GAMES. #USMNT
