NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Soccer suspended three players for their actions in games last weekend.
Real Salt Lake's Yordany Alvarez was suspended three games Friday for a reckless challenge on New York's Tim Cahill, while Philadelphia's Keon Daniel and Colorado's Hendry Thomas were each suspended one game.
Daniel was cited for ``an act of violent conduct'' because he kicked the ball after a whistle while Whitecaps midfielder Jun Marques Davidson was on top of it. Then Davidson head-butted Daniel in the back and was sent off.
Thomas committed a reckless challenge on Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder Hector Jimenez. He also has a one-game suspension to serve for accumulating yellow cards, so he will miss the Rapids' next two games.
