The United States beat rivals Mexico 3-2 on Sunday night to win the CONCACAF League of Nations final which was exploited by more instances of supporters using a homophobic edge and throwing objects on the field, some of them which affected the players of both teams.
U.S. defender Mark McKenzie has shared because of his Instagram story that he has already been the target of racist abuse online. “The amount of racial abuse and personal attacks on me and my family by‘ supporters ’and‘ non-supporters ’is not alone,” McKenzie wrote in a post that included racist language, according to The Associated Press.
The 22-year-old had a rough outing Sunday night that included a costly gift that allowed Mexico’s Crown Jesus to open the scoring 63 seconds into the game, and McKenzie is the key figure in a controversial handball decision. in the last minute of extra time he presented “El Tri” with a penalty and the opportunity to tie the contest. However, safety guard Ethan Horvath has produced what is, to date, his biggest moment on the international stage.
