McKennie, who was on loan at Leeds United from Juventus last season, was sent off for his part in the scuffle. Pepi added a third for the US in the 78th minute and both sides had another player red carded when Arteaga and Dest were sent off following another mass brawl.

Drinks were also thrown from the stands while fans were warned in stadium announcements that the game could be suspended because of the homophobic chanting. The referee blew for full time with about half of the 12 minutes of scheduled added time still to play.
Pulisic said, “It’s a great scoreline for us, it’s a big win and we’re into the finals,” “But the game didn’t need to turn into all the madness that it did. “They really need to control the game much more. It’s sad. And now we’re missing two good players just because everyone’s losing their heads. “I’m a little bit upset but at the end of the day we’re in the final.”
Concacaf – the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football – said it “strongly condemns the discriminatory chanting” during the game. The Mexican Football Federation have been fined a number of times in the past by Fifa for homophobic chanting by their fans.
Fifa also charged Mexico for the behaviour of their fans during their opening game of the 2022 World Cup against Poland. “Chants heard during the game led to the activation of the anti-discrimination protocol by the match officials,” said Concacaf. “Additionally, security staff ejected several fans for engaging in unacceptable behaviour in the stadium.
“These incidents were extremely disappointing and tarnished what should have been a positive occasion to showcase high-quality football in our region.”
BJ Callaghan was in charge of the US team for the game but there are reports. he admitted in a statement co-signed by his wife Rosalind that he kicked her during an argument in 1992 – decided there is “no legal impediment to employing” the coach again.
The US will play Canada in the Concacaf Nations League final on Monday after they beat Panama 2-0 thanks to goals from Jonathan David and Alphonso Davies.
