It was a routine CONCACAF Gold Cup competition game between United States of America and El Salvador but a ‘little’ anomaly occurred when defender Henry Romero went too far to distract American Jozy Altidore during the game.

It all happened during a corner kick, when Romero grabbed Altidore from behind to hinder his movement on the pitch. The El Salvador defender bit the American striker on his back but it didn’t stop here.

When another corner kick was called, Romero then sneaked his hand from behind on Altidore’s chest and twisted his nipples. Outraged at the incident, MLS player retaliated but the matter was later settled.

Later after the match, Altidore took a rather light-hearted dig at the incident and said that “My girl is mad at me and she’s mad at Romero.”

“She’s like ‘Only I can bite you. Only I can grab your nipples’,” he jokingly added.

United States cruised pass El Salvador 2-0 in the game and will face Costa Rica in the semi-final game of the Gold Cup.
