Nicolas Lodeiro’s equalizing penalty likely came as a bit of a gut punch to Minnesota United fans. That he celebrated it by ripping off his shirt in front of the United supporters’ section probably didn’t sit well either. That someone threw a full beer at him, though, still shouldn’t be excused.
The good news? It apparently didn’t hit him and the person who threw it was immediately identified and apparently ejected.
They were very quickly identified and dealt with by DCs and stadium security.— señorita marquesita (@katie_stp) August 5, 2018
Of course, the Sounders ended up getting the last laugh anyway as several minutes later they added a second stoppage-time goal to complete the comeback and leapfrog United in the Western Conference standings.
