Watch: Columbus GK stops penalty kick, but PK is retaken after Video Review

With the Columbus Crew clinging to a 1-0 lead on the road against the defending MLS Cup champion Seattle Sounders, goalkeeper Eloy Room stopped Raul Ruidiaz on a penalty kick attempt with 10 minutes remaining. 

But referee Jair Marrufo and his officiating crew spotted that Room was off his line, leading to a retake after Video Review. 

Ruidiaz did not miss on the second attempt and the Week 2 match finished 1-1.

"The referees got it right. VAR got it right. You can clearly see it on the replay," Seattle head coach Brian Schmetzer said. "He [the goalkeeper] can step sideways, but he can't step forward. So for me it was just like 'Raul is not going to miss two in a row. He's just not.'"
