Watch: Felipe serious foul play

The Disciplinary Committee has suspended D.C. United midfielder Felipe and fined him an undisclosed amount after finding him guilty of serious foul play on the Montreal Impact's Victor Wanyama. The incident, for which Felipe was originally shown a yellow card, took place in the 35th minute of D.C.'s game against Montreal on July 21.

The play was reviewed under Disciplinary Committee Parameter #3, in which the Disciplinary Committee may act where the Professional Referees Organization (PRO) acknowledges an on-field referee or Video Review error, and where the Committee is unanimous that the play warrants at least a one match suspension as a clear and unequivocal red card, is egregious and/or repeat behavior in nature, and/or the Committee must act to protect player safety or the integrity of the game.
