Gambia and Portland Timbers defender Mamadou Futty Danso was red carded in Saturday’s MLS 2-2 draw against Vancouver Whitecaps.
Danso was said to have received his marching orders following a race on goal with Camilo. Goal.com stated that Mamadou Danso tangled up with the Brazilian and earned a soft red card.
The numerical disadvantage didn’t prevent Portland from equalizing. Jose Valencia scored his first MLS goal, plucking a Will Johnson chip out of the air, wriggling in the box and finishing sharply.
That 84th minute equalizer came just minutes after Futty Danso’s sending off following a collision with Camilo.
Danso was the last man back on the play, meaning referee Matthew Forster had to bring out the red if he thought a foul took place.
