VIDEO: Sunil Gulati takes shot at Mexico in speech to the USA supporters before Gold Cup final

New, 14 comments

The American Outlaws have made a habit of marching past USSF headquarters on the way to United States matches in Chicago, IL. After all, Soccer House is just a hop, skip and jump away from Soldier Field.

Knowing that the American Outlaws will be stopping by, USSF president Sunil Gulati has also done his part by hanging around Soccer House so he could speak to the group of U.S. supporters on the way by and Sunday before the Gold Cup final was no different.

In a speech that lasted more than five minutes, albeit with plenty of breaks as the fans chanted and sung, Gulati hit all the basic talking points. He supported the team, thanked the fans and made plans to celebrate the Gold Cup win.

Then he targeted Mexco.

"I asked the Mexican federation president if he had priced out charters to New Zealand," Gulati said.

GULATI THREW A HAYMAKER.
