I don’t know why dirty soccer players tend to bother me more than athletes from other sports. Maybe it’s because they’re also the first to fall to the ground, rolling in fake agony from a phantom injury as well.

Fortunately, dirty play, which included biting players and pinching nipples (yup), didn’t pay off for the El Salvador squad as they lost 2-0 to the USMNT in the Gold Cup last night.

You can see the nipple-pinching, plain as day, in the gif below:

Joze Altidore, to his immense credit, had a sense of humor about being a lightning rod for these dirty tactics. 

That’s the spirit!
