Yes, soccer players often celebrate near the stands. what I am pretty sure

i saw was pulisic going over (and, of course, everyone else following his lead) to TAUNT the opposing fans. it would be one thing if he were attempting to celebrate with US fans (and were getting pelted by nearby mexicans) but that's not what I saw. it's also not unheard of to go celebrate with one's bench

I guess we can dismiss the incident as unavoidable...but it sure looked like questionable judgment to THIS observer. my money is that berhalter has or will discuss how to handle hostile concacaf crowds in the future, using last night as a teachable moment
