[USA-MEXICO] After the USA's 2-0 win over Mexico on Wednesday, U.S. defender Frankie Hejduk was slapped by  Mexico assistant coach Paco Ramirez, but Hejduk said he believes the hit was the result of a "misunderstanding."

Hejduk told the Washington Post's Steven Goff:

"I was just trying to pump the crowd up [as he was leaving the field]. I was actually saying, 'F*** yeah!' I think they thought I was saying, 'F*** you.' It was a misunderstanding and I can see why they would be a little bit upset if they thought I was saying the other one, which I wasn't.

"At the end of the day, no one was hurt. There was a little love tap and that was it. I still have my face. No damage done. It was fun. That's just how emotional this game is and that's how passionate they are about their sport. It was none of their players -- I want to make that clear to everyone."
