Anderlecht overcame two red cards to salvage a drew with Standard Liege in Belgium’s Jupiler Pro League yesterday, but it wasn’t enough to save Sacha Kljestan’s mustache. The American midfielder decided to shave off his stache after eleven straight league wins, and unveiled the results on Instagram. Kljestan is now headed to join up with the USMNT, who kick off fourth round World Cup qualifying on Wednesday in Honduras.
While we’re glad the terrible, terrible, mustache is gone, we can’t help but be a little afraid at how close it looks to already being back. I mean, it’s basically still there. At any moment it could spring back into existence, probably leveling a small city and scarring multiple impressionable young people for life.
