Shocking Footage of Fights Between USA and El Salvador Fans In Gold Cup [VIDEO]

Video footage has been posted on the Internet that shows shocking footage of fights that happened during the USA against El Salvador match in the CONCACAF Gold Cup match that was played in Baltimore on Sunday night.

World Soccer Talk’s Morgan Green reported yesterday that there were a multitude of fights both inside and outside of M&T Bank Stadium.

Green wrote:

“As I met back up with [my friend] Jim for the post game press conferences, he informed me that there were multiple fights outside of the stadium as well as inside. He had spoken to the head of security at the stadium who said they had tripled the amount of security and it still was barely enough to handle what was going on.”

As you can be seen in the footage, which is very concerning to soccer fans who want the sport to grow in this country, where were the stewards, security and police officers? And why weren’t they able to respond more quickly to this disturbance where some of these fans were using belts? I think it’s high time that CONCACAF and the US Soccer Federation looks into employing more security and better training them to help prevent these type of unfortunate skirmishes.
