Chelsea defender Matt Miazga stirred up tensions by mocking the height of Diego Lainez as the United States took on Mexico in a friendly in a friendly match which took place at Nissan Stadium in Tennessee last night.
Miazga, who is currently on loan at Nantes, looked to embarrass the 5ft 6in 18-year-old Mexican.
Standing at 6ft 4in the Blues man towered over Lainez, much to the delight of the partisan Nashville crowd, before both sets of players waded in to defend their team-mates.
The altercation emerged as the pair tussled for possession near the touchline and the US ace does well to draw a foul from the Club America teenager.
But clearly unhappy at the foul, Miazga became irate and began gesturing and talking to Lainez about his height, given the sizeable difference between them.
