The United States Men’s National Team destroyed El Salvador, 5-1, in yesterday’s Gold Cup quarterfinal match in Baltimore. Despite having the home soil, the Americans were not fan favorites as die-hard El Salvador fans packed the stadium. Late in the proceedings, they decided throw lots of things at Landon Donovan, including sunglasses. Donovan made the best of the situation.
The referee’s assistant was totally not OK with what just happened there. The rest of us, though? We’re very much OK with such a flagrant infusion of swag into the national team.
