Do you want to make your own Philadelphia joke or should I? I’ll leave it to you. The Philadelphia Union, a MLS team, was in Costa Rica for some warmup friendlies before the season started. They were playing AD Belen and found themselves down 2-0 with about half of the first half remaining.
A potentially dangerous tackle from Philly’s Michael Farfan ignited a brawl involving punching, kicking, and soccer ball throwing.
Not exactly a good way to act as a guest in a country. At least they’re passionate about the game.
