The Lions midfielder has earned a one-match suspension and an undisclosed fine after kicking out at New York Red Bulls midfielder Felipe during Sunday’s 1-0 win.

Upon replay, it was clear that Perez Garcia and Felipe both went to ground after jostling for the ball before the former aimed a kick at the right thigh of the Red Bulls player.

Perez Garcia will miss his club’s next match when Orlando hosts the LA Galaxy on Saturday afternoon at Orlando City Stadium.
