Panama players storm after referee following controversial Gold Cup loss

Official Mark Geiger had to be lead away by security

In a fitting end to arguably the wildest CONCACAF Gold Cup match ever, Panama's players and coaching staff angrily ran toward referee Mark Geiger after Mexico's controversial 2-1 victory. Incensed over a red card and two penalty decisions going against them, coach Hernan Gomez and his squad dashed after Geiger, who had to be escorted off the field by security.

Suffice to say, much will be discussed after an insane evening in the Georgia Dome.

Update: The tension between the two teams unsurprisingly continued.
