The friendly match between Brazil and Mexico on Saturday night in the United States was suspended for approximately two minutes as an anti-homophobia measure.

The screams came as the Brazilian goalkeeper took the goal kick. The referee then gathered the players in the middle of the field, and the stadium screen displayed the message: “Due to the screaming that was just heard, the match has been temporarily suspended. Persons identified as engaging in discriminatory screaming will be removed from the stadium.”
