Nani witnesses unlikely showdown in MLS: goalkeeper gets red card during...

We can be brief about the match itself. After barely seven minutes it was already 1-1. The Portuguese Nani (ex-Manchester United) gave the home team an early lead with a penalty kick. Maxime Chanot (ex-KV Kortrijk) nodded in a corner for New York.

So much for the secondary figures.

Protagonist 1: Pedro Gallese. That’s the Peruvian Orlando City goalkeeper. The match progress had everything to proclaim him the man of the match. He kept his nets – except for that one goal – clean despite 26 goal attempts by the visitors. In extra time, he was booked for time stretching. It stayed 1-1.

Protagonist 2: Allen Chapman. That is the American referee who managed the game. During the penalties, he single-handedly decided that Gallese was not allowed to defend his candidacy for man of the match. Chapman judged that the goalkeeper on the fourth penalty kick – which Gallese also stopped – had left his line too early and again drew yellow for the keeper. He couldn’t believe his eyes and had to leave the field with a red card in his pocket during the penalty shootout.

Rodrigo Schlegel, an Argentinian defender, replaced him. And so protagonist 3 immediately made his appearance.

In the meantime we would forget the stand. It was 4-3 at the time. At 4-4, Nani was allowed to build to score the all-deciding fifth penalty for Orlando.

As a result, it was still shaking and trembling for the home team, but in the end Schlegel still won the home team. He stopped the penalty from Thorarinsson at 6-5 for Orlando and made sure Gallese did not have to feel too guilty anyway.
