Carranza will miss New England game with yellow card suspension

The Philadelphia Union will once again be short-handed on the front line when they visit the New England Revolution on Saturday after Julián Carranza earned his fifth yellow card of the season in Portland.

Carranza went into the book in the 81st minute as he was leaving the field. Referee Allen Chapman didn’t like how long it was taking him to exit the field and booked him for time wasting.

The 21-year-old, who leads Union strikers in goals and assists, was shocked and confused by the decision and head coach Jim Curtin was livid.
