The Paraguay star was checked over by medical staff after being hit by the object thrown by a fan late in the first half of the showpiece game.

It happened as he ran to celebrate Taty Castellanos’s 41st-minute goal near the corner flag.

Medina fell to the floor after the can appeared to hit his arm.

And while the 24-year-old lay stricken on the floor, a second can was thrown at the group of players by Portland fans from high up in the stands.

During the interval, the Timbers announced on Twitter that the fan who threw the object had been ejected from the game and banned from Providence Park.

The tweet added: “There is zero tolerance for behavior of that kind.”


After the match, the Portland Police Bureau said it had made two arrests and charged two supporters with misdemeanor crimes.

MLS Golden Boot Castellanos had headed in the opening goal of the game.

Felipe Mora scored a dramatic late equaliser for Portland but the Cityzens won a penalty shoot-out to lift the cup.

New York are owned by the City Football Group, who also own Premier League giants Manchester City.

Frank Lampard and Jack Harrison are among the stars who have played for both clubs, and Sky Blues boss Pep Guardiola has been linked with a possible move to the Big Apple outfit when he leaves the Etihad.
