Those in charge of Copa America have had a rough go of things over the last few weeks. Fans have lashed out at the premium ticket pricing, Brazil was sent home on an egregious handball that went uncalled and organizers even played recording artist Pitbull over the Chile national anthem.
As if that wasn’t enough, Copa America officials found out on Tuesday night that the U.S. Men’s National Team was secretly using U.S. Women’s National Team goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris throughout the tournament, apparently impersonating Chris Wondolowski.
Okay, well, not quite. Harris did, however, make noise on social media during the USMNT’s Copa America semifinal against Argentina, when her name was used on the Fox Sports 1 as receiving a first-half yellow card.
Of course, the Internet was quick to point out the error, including USWNT teammate and FIFA World Player of the Year Carli Lloyd.
Never miss a local story.
Harris definitely had some fun with the mistake:
Some USMNT fans might’ve opted for Harris in goal after Guzan stood and watched a reachable Lionel Messi pass find the head of Ezequiel Lavezzi for the opening goal just three minutes into the match.
Messi later put Argentina up 2-0 ahead of halftime on a world-class free kick that few in the world are actually able to pull off.
