Glass bottle thrown from the crowd strikes player on the head during celebrations.
Despite scoring the match winner in FC Dallas’ 1-0 win over the LA Galaxy, George John’s celebrations were cut immediately short after he was struck by a glass bottle that was thrown from the crowd.
The bottle was thrown from a section of FC Dallas fans who were celebrating behind the goal. While the incident may have been an unfortunate accident, alcohol and glass bottles are not banned from stadiums in the US, therefore these incidents are likely to happen from time to time from unruly fans
The late win saw Dallas extend their lead at the top of the Western Division to six points over Chivas.
