NEW YORK – A week after suspending three players for on-field actions, the Major League Soccer Disciplinary Committee announced today that New England Revolution midfielder Shalrie Joseph has been suspended for one game and fined an undisclosed amount for a reckless challenge that endangered the safety of his opponent.
Joseph’s action occurred in the 62nd minute of the match between FC Dallas and New England Revolution on Thursday, April 5th. The veteran lost the ball in the midfield and brought Dallas midfielder Ricardo Villar down with a tackle from behind. Joseph will serve his suspension this Saturday when the Revolution play D.C. United at Gillette Stadium.
The Texas Derby comes to MLS Reserve League tonight when FC Dallas faces Houston Dynamo. Match begins at 7:30 p.m. inside FC Dallas Stadium. Fans are welcome to attend for free, but concession stands and the beer garden will not open.
Match updates will be tweeted via @FCDallas and a match recap will be posted online afterward.
The win was critical, but even better for Dallas is that Brek Shea looked dangerous for solid chunks of time. He's nowhere near his form at this time last year, but perhaps his slump – which is approaching eight months – is finally over?
One of the ladies in the office passed this tidbit along to us. FC Dallas defender Zach Loyd is one of the "Hot Soccer Players We Can't Resist" in an online story at Cosmopolitan.com. Congratulations, I guess...
