Mexican “home game” on American soil
Jeering the U.S. team and chanting obscenities at the goalkeeper, the mob of Mexicans — most of whom reside in America — blared air horns and bounced beach balls during the playing of the national anthem at the Gold Cup Final at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
The U.S. team was roundly booed as a vast majority of attendees supported Mexico in the U.S.-Mexico soccer match Saturday, which Mexico won 4-2.
The attendance of 93,420 was the largest for a Gold Cup game in the United States. Shamefully, the entire post-match ceremony was conducted in Spanish.
