Seattle's Alonso has red card rescinded

Seattle Sounders FC midfielder Osvaldo Alonso will be eligible to play in Saturday's match with the Colorado Rapids after an independent review panel rescinded his red-card suspension on Wednesday.

Alonso was issued a red card in the closing moments of Seattle's 1-0 defeat to San Jose on July 13 when he got into an altercation with Earthquakes defender Dan Gargan, which would have carried a one-game suspension.

But after reviewing the incident, the independent panel ruled that the contact Alonso made with Gargan wasn't enough to warrant a violent conduct charge, allowing him to play on Saturday.
