Players from the Montreal Impact in MLS were described by TV commentators as “sore losers” and “classless” for the way they ended their MLS playoff hopes last night after losing 3-0 to the Houston Dynamo in a fiery match where three Impact players were red carded.
Nelson Rivas, Andres Romero and Marco Di Vaio were all red carded for Montreal Impact in the second half of the match.
Montreal Impact defender Jeb Brovsky told reporters:
“We must look at ourselves and say that we were beat today by a better team. To their credit, they smelled blood and they killed us. To finish a game like that is a shame for the players, for the club. You never want to go out that way, and I’m not happy. I’m not happy at all.”
After beating Montreal, Houston Dynamo will play New York Red Bulls on Sunday at 3:30pm ET, live on NBC.
Here’s video of the incident near the end of the match where Di Vaio and Romero were sent off after a tussle with Houston Dynamo players.
