Mexico beat the USA 3-1 in extra-time to win the CONCACAF U20 Championship Final last night, with Mexico substitute Julio Gomez providing the breakthrough in added time to finally bust open the 1-1 deadlock that couldn’t be broken by either side during the first 90 minutes.

Irked at having conceded so late in the day, the perfectly pertinently-named USA keeper Cody Cropper shuffled over into Gomez’s path and…well, cropped him as the Mexican wheeled away in celebration…

Cropper by name, cropper by nature!

Delightfully bad sportsmanship, eh? You’ve got to love it.
