Mexico player tripped by US goalkeeper after scoring winning goal in CONCACAF championship (Video)

USA goalkeeper Cody Cropper tripped up Mexico's Julio Gomez after he scored the winning goal during extra time of the CONCACAF U-20 championship final soccer match Sunday night.

With the score tied at 1-1, Gomez broke the tie in the 99th minute by scoring an overhead goal off a corner kick. Cropper deliberately tripped Gomez as he ran in front of the net to celebrate in a show of unbelievably poor sportsmanship, but to Gomez's credit, he got right back up without retailiating.

Mexico won the match 3-1 for its 12th CONCACAF U-20 title.

Holdout Sports does not condone this type of behavior.

H/T Dirty Tackle.
