Gilberto and Jermain Defoe are teammates for the MLS’ Toronto F.C., but they didn’t act like it on Friday as they took on the New York Red Bulls. Prior to a free kick for Toronto, Gilberto assumed he would be taking the kick, but Defoe had a much different idea. As Gilberto went to set the ball down to take the free kick, Defoe came up from behind and tried to slap the ball out of his hands and the two each threw a minor temper tantrum that would make any 2 year-old proud.
When the dust settled, Gilberto took the free kick and launched a laser into the back of the net. Defoe was speechless following the strike and was reduced to laughter, which was really the only appropriate reaction. It is good to see that the two teammates get rewarded for bad behavior.
