Friedel wins red card appeal, won't miss Man Utd match

Aston Villa goalkeeper and American legend Brad Friedel won his appeal of the red card he was issued during Aston Villa's 5-0 thrashing vs. Liverpool. With the red card now rescinded, Friedel should be in goal for Villa when they take on Manchester United in two weeks.

The red card also threatened to snap Friedel streak of consecutive EPL games played, which goes back to 2004. Now that Friedel won't be suspended, American back-up Brad Guzan will stay on the bench. Guzan is expected to start for the United States in World Cup qualifying against El Salvado in place of suspended goalkeeper Tim Howard.

What do you think of the decision? Think it was fair of the FA to rescind the red card? Disappointed Brad Guzan won't get to face Manchester United in two weeks? Wondering if, and when Brad Friedel will come back to MLS?
