Aurelien Collin's Suspension Rescinded

While many around Major League Soccer are waiting to hear about what happens to Brian Mullanone club learned that they will have a player available for Saturday

Major League Soccer announced on Wednesday that U.S. Soccer has rescinded the mandatory one-game suspension resulting from the red card Sporting Kansas City defender Aurelien Collin received in the 76th minute of Sporting's 3-2 loss at the New England Revolution this past weekend.    

Collin will be available for Saturday's match at the New York Red Bulls

The following statement was issued to the clubs today:

"US Soccer reviewed the red card issued to A. Collin and determined that the incident was a case of mistaken identity with B. Diop.  As a result A. Collin will no longer be suspended for the next league match. The MLS Disciplinary Committee reviewed the play and ruled that no sanctions against B. Diop were warranted.  Therefore, both B. Diop and A. Collin are eligible to play in their next match against New York Red Bull."

Collin was listed as "striking an opponent" in an altercation with New England goalkeeper Matt Ries. Sporting went on to lose the match 3-2.
