With the Sounders up 1-0, Jalil Anibaba took down a streaking Joevin Jones and earned a 28th-minute red card for his troubles. Nicolas Lodeiro stepped up for the penalty only to be stoned by Dynamo 'keeper Joe Willis.
But could some shenanigans have affected the outcome? Dynamo center back Philippe Senderos was caught on camera perhaps attempting to tweak the turf as Lodeiro approached. Take a look for yourself, per Twitter user Bryan Babcock:
As if it wasn't bad enough, Senderos tearing up the spot before Lodeiro's PK... pic.twitter.com/kJvX3w9yw7— Bryan Babcock (@bcock7) November 22, 2017
As you can see in the clip, Lodeiro claimed the space and set his shot. And maybe Senderos was just clearing his cleats. We know Seattle won, and while Nico's normally strong from the spot anyone can miss in the moment, but y'all think this kept an away goal off the ledger?
