Before the friendly between the LA Galaxy and Manchester United Sunday, Galaxy mascot Cozmo pulled a little joke on United during warm-ups, displaying a sign that said "IT'S CALLED SOCCER" to the Red Devils.

Manchester United responded to this heckling by wrecking the Galaxy, 5-2. It could have been worse, but Man U took their feet off the gas pedal up 5-0. Marcus Rashford's two goals in the first 20 minutes conveyed just what he thought of Cozmo's sign. Marouane Fellaini even scored.
Giovani Dos Santos scored twice late to salvage a little dignity for soccer, but it's clear football won out on the day.
