Seattle D Leo Gonzalez suspended for 1 game

Seattle Sounders defender Leo Gonzalez has been suspended one

game and fined for stomping on the leg of Philadelphia’s Sheanon

Williams late in last Saturday’s game.

The discipline from Major League Soccer was handed down on

Tuesday. Gonzalez will miss Seattle’s game on Wednesday night at FC

Dallas. The incident happened in the 88th minute of Seattle’s 1-0

win on Saturday. Gonzalez stomped on the right leg of Williams

after he slid to pass the ball upfield.

The league also announced that an independent review panel

determined New England forward Fernando Cardenas was incorrectly

shown a red card against Real Salt Lake. The red card was appealed

by the Revolution and MLS has rescinded the one-game suspension and

fine against Cardenas.
