Porto defender and Mexico international Miguel Layun expressed his frustration Saturday at seeing a fake wall with "Mexico" and "USA" signs up at a Toys "R" Us in Portugal.
”How sad that the Toys "R" Us in Gaia would have this type of decoration. We decided to leave when we saw this 'joke'." Layun tweeted, along with a picture of the wall near entrance of the toy store.
The wall appeared to be a nod to U.S. President Donald Trump's plans to build a larger border wall between the two nations. It's been a source of frustration for many players from both countries, with Mexico captain Rafa Marquez among those who spoke out against the idea, while United States coach Bruce Arena has expressed skepticism about the president's travel ban.
The retail outlet, headquartered in New Jersey, has a location in Vila Nova de Gaia near Porto and tweeted a response to Layun.
"Please know that this is not who we are and we have immediately contacted the store management in Portugal to address this," the tweet read.
A request for further comment from the company was not immediately returned.
