Whitecaps midfielder Barry Robson suspended 1 game

Vancouver Whitecaps midfielder Barry Robson has been suspended

for one game for ”aggravated dissent” toward an official.

Major League Soccer announced the punishment Saturday after an

exchange with an assistant referee in stoppage time during

Wednesday’s 2-0 home loss to FC Dallas.

The league also fined the Scottish player, who will miss

Saturday’s game at Seattle.

Robson called the game the most frustrating of his career

because of the constant stops and starts as a result of fouls.

A total of 31 infractions were called – 24 on Vancouver and 17

on Dallas.

Nine players, six from Vancouver and three from Dallas, received

yellow cards.
