Video Review overturns red card for first time in MLS history

History happened Saturday, as Video Review overturned an MLS red card call for the first time.

It happened in Atlanta United FC's match against LAFC at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. In the opening minute of play, referee Ted Unkel showed Atlanta defender Chris McCann a straight red card for a challenge on LAFC midfielder Benny Feilhaber in midfield. But after Video Review, Unkel reversed the call, instead giving McCann a yellow card and summoning him back onto the field.

McCann went on to play the full 90 in Atlanta's 5-0 victory.
