New England’s Shalrie Joseph suspended, fined for challenge on Villar

By Mark Norris

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.
