Yannick Boli gets a yellow card for this foul on Jordy Delem. The challenge goes to video review as the studs were up, but the call stands.
Good news: The ref finally gave a yellow card!— Sounder At Heart (@sounderatheart) July 5, 2018
Bad news: It was a miserable challenge. Currently under review and Delem is hurt. pic.twitter.com/47VEifIlCv
