Freddy Adu sent off for diving (Video)

In Sunday MLS action, Philadelphia Union star Freddy Adu receive a yellow card of the match when he was called for diving in the NY Red Bulls penalty box near the end of the first half. Since it was Adu's second yellow card, he received a red card and was sent off for the rest of the match.

Based on the video, it appeared that Adu lost his balance after trying to dribble through two NY Red Bull defenders, and was not a deliberate dive. It was unfortunate as Adu had an assist on a Union goal earlier in the first half. The Red Bulls won the match 3-2.
