Footballer’s time-wasting tactic impresses fans – it was ‘ultimate s***housery’

Fans have been left impressed by a Major League Soccer player's time-wasting tactics, with many commending his antics for its level of s***housery.

The moment happened during stoppage time of the match between Philadelphia Union and New England Revolution on Friday night in America.

With 10-man New England leading by a goal to nil, defender Henry Kessler booted the ball into the crowd after it had gone out for a Philadelphia throw in.

He then picked up one of the spare balls from the side line and threw it into the crowd, causing a scuffle to break out between players from both sides.

Kessler was booked for his time-wasting antics that led to the tensions between players but his side held on to claim the three points.

Fans took to social media to react to the incident after footage was shared on Twitter, with one fan writing "That is some aggressive time wasting."

Another supporter added that it was "Superb time wasting", while a third fan commented "S***housery level of time-wasting achieved."

New England had taken the lead on Friday night in the first half after Matt Polster's goal in the 33rd minute at Subaru Park in Philadelphia.
