So what happened after Tuesday’s game between Eddie Johnson and Jed Zayner?

A postgame incident between Sounders FC’s Eddie Johnson and San Jose’s Jed Zayner has stolen a lot of attention in the aftermath of Seattle’s 1-0 road win Tuesday in a U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal.

What happened can be seen at about the 54:10 mark in the video posted above. You’ll have to judge for yourself.

Our game story by Richard J. Marcus has some reaction from the scene at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco.

“All the reports that I heard is that (Johnson) was celebrating in front of our bench and yelling at our fans, and Jed told him just go do it over on his side,” Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski told The San Jose Mercury News. “And he took a swing and hit Jed in the eye.”

Johnson was not reached for comment.

Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said he thought Zayner swung first and added that San Jose coaches also confronted Sounders players before the melee.

“It was a bad way to end the game,” Schmid said.

This quote from Zayner, who apparently wasn’t seriously injured, was passed along by Earthquakes reporter Robert Jonas in two parts:

“To have a guy who’s played on the national team and is supposedly a professional celebrate in front of our bench, which is wrong and then to hit me. It’s unbelievable,” said Zayner.

What do you make of what happened? Too difficult to make out in the video?
