Watch: Alejandro Fuenmayor red card leaves Houston Dynamo with 10 vs. Sporting KC

Houston Dynamo defender Alejandro Fuenmayor was ejected in the 14th minute of a match against Sporting Kansas City on Saturday night.

Fuenmayor leapt into the air to try to get his head on ab all heading toward SKC’s 16-year-old Gianluca Busio. Instead, Fuenmayor slammed his shoulder into the back of Busio’s head. The broadcasters calling the match disagreed with the red card, saying it was “just mistimed” and should have been a yellow. On social media, reaction to the play was mixed. Many thought it was a violent play deserving of a red card.

The Dynamo managed to keep the game scoreless until the 74th minute. SKC’s Diego Rubio scored the go-ahead goal off an assist from Busio.
