Clint Dempsey sent off in the 33rd minute

New, comments

After what looked to be a soft call for hands to the face, Clint Dempsey was sent off by referee Ricardo Salazar in the 32nd minute. Dempsey tussled a bit with Juan Esteban Ortiz and looks to have made very soft contact with his face, but the Dallas midfielder went down in a heap clutching his face. Ortiz was apparently given a yellow as well, but Dempsey was shown straight red and will miss Sunday's match at Portland.
