Obafemi Martins will be available for the Seattle Sounders this Saturday when they take on the Vancouver Whitecaps, thanks to an independent panel’s review.

MLS announced on Wednesday that the red card Martins received in the 71st minute of last Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Chivas USA had been rescinded, keeping Martins available for selection in the next match.

Martins was shown a straight red card by referee Ricardo Salazar after falling over Chivas midfielder Gabe Farfan and making contact between Martins’ boot and Farfan’s face.

What do you make of this news? Do you believe the play was worthy of a red card? Do you agree with the decision?
