To say that Orlando City SC had reason to be upset after Sunday’s match against the New England Revolution is putting it mildly. Yet one of their veteran locker-room leaders remained admirably evenhanded, even in the heat of the moment.
Replays suggested that Lee Nguyen's pass had actually hit Carrasco's chest, but the call stood and New England equalized on the ensuing penalty kick.
Tempers flared in the aftermath, but Orlando City defender Aurélien Collin kept a more even keel in reacting to the incident.
“We’re all human, we all make mistakes, but it wasn’t a handball. It’s disappointing we didn’t get three points, but we just have to accept it,” he said.
