Arsenal's player involved in fight between US and Canadian teams in tunnel.
Following a thrilling 2-2 draw in the Gold Cup quarter final between USA and Canada, tensions boiled over in the tunnel after the full-time whistle. Footage only emerged on Monday of the players engaging in a mass brawl. It appears that USA taunted their Canadian rivals as they headed down the tunnel after a rather ill-tempered match where six yellow cards were handed out by the referee.

Arsenal goalkeeper Matt Turner had to turn peacemaker when he arrived on the scene and attempted to separate the two groups of players with the help of security. Turner is currently captaining his country in the absence of Chelsea's Christian Pulisic and his heroics in the penalty shootout meant that USA won 3-2.

The 29-year-old spoke about his success in the shootout, saying: "A lot of the penalties that I had seen on my sheets or in my preparation, most of those guys were off the pitch by the time the pens were there. I just trusted my instincts, really, and typically when I do that, I find myself having a lot more success."

The USA are set to play Panama in the semi-finals on Thursday and if victorious will face either Jamaica or Mexico in the final in California next Monday. It will be interesting to see what other drama will unfold as the tournament draws to a close.
