Jair Marrufo, Eloy Room and Raul Ruidiaz in PK VAR sequence

Eloy Room was the hero — for a fleeting moment.

The Columbus Crew SC goalkeeper denied Seattle's Raul Ruidiaz from the penalty spot, only for the Peruvian to be given a second chance after Room was ruled to have been off his line when the kick was taken following Video Review.

Referee Jair Marrufo returned from the monitor and pointed to the spot a second time and this time the Seattle Sounders forward earned a measure of revenge. The Peruvian had the audacity to go the same way, and Room even got a touch on the attempt, but it was hit with too much power for the Curacao International to stop it.

The whole wild sequence started when Crew right back Harrison Afful handled a Nouhou Tolo endline cross.

It was a pivotal moment in the 1-1 Week 2 draw between the teams at CenturyLink Field.
