MLS Cup final: Jesus Medina struck by beer can in NYCFC vs. Portland Timbers game

New York City FC were crowned MLS Cup champions on Saturday for the first time in franchise history as they defeated the Portland Timbers 4-2 in penalty kicks following a 1-1 draw after extra time. The match produced a scary scene late in the first half as a NYCFC player was struck by a beer can thrown by a Portland Timbers supporter. After Maxi Moralez set up Valentin Castellanos for the opening goal late in the first half, the team went to the corner to celebrate with the Argentine duo as they took the lead on the road. That's when a Timbers fan launched a beer can that struck Medina high, though it looks like it did end up avoiding his face. Take a look:

Brown Thrasher by Jesus Medina

About the Bird: A foxy-red bird that likes to hang out in the understory, foraging for berries and bugs, the Brown Thrasher is today widespread throughout much of the Central and Eastern United States. Its loud, crackling callnotes can be heard from dense shrubbery, but when defending its territory, the male will sing rich, melodious songs from high perches. The species is highly vulnerable to climate change: It may lose 87 percent of its current summer range by the end of the century if temperatures continue to rise unabated. Curbing greenhouse gas emissions to keep warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius over preindustrial levels will preserve more than half of that habitat.

New York City FC: The future of Jesús Medina is a toss-up

The season for New York City FC is still going on , but the club has to make a decision on the future of Jesús Medina as well. Back on New Year’s Eve in 2017, New York City FC announced the signing of Jesús Medina to a Young Designated Player contract. The Paraguayan was a talented prospect, and there were high expectations for him. In his first season, he did score six goals. However, he spent most of his tenure invisible on the pitch, and primarily did not contribute to the attack. His playing time also decreased significantly in his second season, and even though he improved in his third year, he was still not good enough.

NYCFC need Jesus Medina more than ever
