‘One of the drunkest games I’ve ever seen!’ – USMNT’s chaotic Nations League triumph leaves social media stunned

The Sunday night match took extra time to decide and involved all kinds of incidents rarely seen in the sport

The U.S. men’s national team emerged victorious in one of the most bizarre matches in its history on Sunday night in the Nations League final vs Mexico.

The 3-2 extra time win by Gregg Berhalter’s men took customary CONCACAF match silliness to a new level, as Mexico manager Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino was shown a red card for interfering with VAR, a streaker ran on to the field, two controversial late penalties were awarded and players from both sides were pelted by projectiles from the fans in attendance. 

In all, it was an endearing, frustrating and at times hilarious match for soccer in the region, and one that seemed to send a jolt through. social media on a night that had been expected to be all about the boxing exhibition involving Floyd Mayweather.
