Following former Beatle Paul McCartney’s sold-out concert in June, another group of Englishmen played in Baltimore on Saturday.
Instead of a musical performance this time, however, it was a preseason-friendly match between English Premier League soccer teams Arsenal and Everton.
Saturday’s game was the first time since 2012 that the English Premier League played in Charm City.
Arsenal’s fans, the “Gooners” (a tribute to the team’s own nickname, the “Gunners”), cheered on their team as they defeated Everton 2-0, with goals scored by Arsenal players Gabriel Jesus and Bukayo Saka.
Watch Arsenal “hype man” Frimpon take in the action from the sidelines at M&T Bank Stadium in this video:
Um, McCartney played at Camden Yards, not M&T, but same neighborhood!
Thanks for the catch! Fixed! We are a small team and don’t have the budget for a copy editor. Help like yours is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
