MLS: FC Dallas at Los Angeles Galaxy Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas will get one more player back for tomorrow's game against LAFC. The club submitted for an appeal of Cristian Colman’s red card Wednesday night against the LA Galaxy.

The Independent Panel, consisting of one representative from the United States Soccer Federation, one representative from the Canadian Soccer Association, and one independent representative nominated by the Professional Referee Organization, has unanimously rescinded the one-game suspension and accompanying fine for the red card issued to Colmán for violent conduct in the 80thminute of FC Dallas’ match against the LA Galaxy on May 30 (VIDEO), MLS announced today.

Each Club is entitled to two unsuccessful appeals per season, including playoffs. Since FC Dallas’ appeal was successful, the team maintains its two unsuccessful appeals for any future dismissals in the 2018 season.
