Sore Losers

Once again the Mexican national team, this time from assistant coach Paco Ramirez, managed to display poor sportsmanship after the team’s 2-0 loss to the United States in Wednesday’s World Cup qualifier.

Upon exiting the field Paco Ramirez confronted Frankie Hejduk and slapped him across the face. It is still unclear why he did so, but according to Hejduk he thinks it’s because Ramirez misinterpreted his antics towards the crowd after the game.

Below is the raw footage of the incident as it was captured by Univision.

More on the incident, as well as a quote from Hejduk can be read on Steven Goff’s match report and on the Soccer Insider.
