A red card in the 13th minute and an absurd goal, which is rarely seen even in children’s games, cost the star selection in the American MLS dearly. FC Los Angeles, with players such as Giorgio Chiellini, Gareth Bale and Carlos Vela, lost 1:2 away to Dallas.
Already in the 8th minute, the game went out of the control of the guests – a long ball brought a home player alone against the goalkeeper Max Crepeau, and the defender Ryan Hollinshead brought him down. The decision was initially a yellow card, but after a long review of the VAR monitor, the referee sent off the LA player.

However, class is class – the visitors took the lead with a goal by Arango in added time in the first half. Bale came on for Vela midway through the second half and Chiellini played the full 90 minutes.
12 minutes before the end came the most curious moment. Argentina’s Franco Escobar fouled a home player not far from the corner flag, but while arguing with the referee that there was no foul, Dallas took the free-kick quickly, cleverly and short, Jesus Ferreira stepped into position and equalized. The guests were completely confused and confused, and the situation even slightly reminded of the corner with which Liverpool lied to Barcelona 3 years ago in the unforgettable semi-final in the Champions League (4:0).
In the end, Ferreira made it 2:1 and Dallas took the points. However, FC Los Angeles leads the West with 60 points and will certainly play in the playoffs. Something that cannot be said for Inter (Miami), owned in part by David Beckham. This luxury club for the second year in a row will miss the decisive part of the season after losing away to Chicago 1:3. Stanislav Ivanov was not in Fire’s group.
