Jozy Altidore Red Carded For Swearing at Referee

By

Jozy Altidore given a red card against SUI

Jozy Altidore was sent off for the above incident, during the second half of the USMNT friendly against Switzerland. It appears to have been a straight red for dissent, as he clearly directed some inappropriate language at the referee. Not clear if the challenge also played a role in the decision. Lip read if you wish.

Generally, you allow players a bit of leeway on dissent in the heat of the moment. Though, this was blatant and dumb.
