On Sunday, a high school soccer match, at Thomas Jefferson Park in New York City, was canceled as a group of around 30 illegals refused to vacate the field, even after the police arrived.

Roughly 40 teenage boys from both teams had assembled to play, but the African migrants, who had limited English proficiency, refused to leave the field.

“I directly asked them to leave and some of them kind of took it into consideration, but then four or five of them said, ‘You know what, f–k it, we don’t have to leave, we can do whatever we want,’” Erik Johansson, the coach of the Manhattan Kickers 17-year-old boys travel team, told the New York Post.

According to the New York Post, when the police arrived, rather than dispersing the migrants, officers requested a copy of the club team’s city permit.

“When you show up with two teams in uniform, a ref and two coaches, usually nobody is asking to see your permit,” said Johansson.

By the time the permit was located, 30 minutes had elapsed, and the teams no longer felt secure playing there.

“Even when the game is over, you don’t know if they’re waiting for you, so even if the cops kicked them out, it may not be over. So we just all agreed, this is too dangerous,” Johansson said.

Hailing from Sweden, Johansson is familiar with how swiftly migrant altercations can escalate.

“I have seen this before, I know how bad it can get,” he said.

Parents informed Johansson that they no longer want their children to play at that field, and the coach confirmed they have no intention of returning.

“It’s so frustrating that the guys who refused to follow the rules won,” Maud Maron, mother of one of the boys on the team, told The Post. “That’s the message the kids got.”
