After the crowd sang the song, with less than ten minutes of play, the referee suspended the actions for a few moments
The discriminatory cry was presented in the stands of the Banc of California Stadium in the MLS All Star game between the Liga MX and the US league., so the central referee stopped the match for minutes while the two teams met in the central circle.
According to ESPN reporter Katia Castorena, the shout was heard in the stands and because of that the match was stopped on a first warning, according to the protocol established by FIFA and Concacaf.
After the interruption and the relevant warnings were given in the stadium to prevent the fans from shouting again, the game resumed smoothly.
Even ESPN analyst David Faitelson called the shout that occurred in the stands of the LAFC home as shameful.
“What a shame! The homophobic scream at the All-Star Game. Incomprehensible. What a pity… ”, he wrote.
In the same way, Hérculez Gómez, an analyst for this channel, wrote in English “I heard the cry at the All-Star Game. Seriously? Unfortunate, “he put on his Twitter account.
After the game was resumed, the fans behaved, for the moment, and enjoyed the game, which exploded at minute 21 with the goal of Jonathan Rodríguez, and that is that the ‘Cabecita’ advanced the Liga MX team with a shot within the area.
