Arsenal Football Club “hype man” Frimpon prepares to cheer on his favorite team during the match between Arsenal and Everton at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Saturday, July 16. Screenshot from Arsenal video.

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.

    1. 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!
