Ricardo Salazar post-match quotes

Referee from Sunday's match responds to press questions

1. What did you see on the collision at the top of the DC box between Andre Hainault and Raphael Augusto just before the half?

I judged this play as 2 guys coming together and no offense was spotted.

2. In your opinion, why was that not a foul?

Based on my angle there was contact by both players and therefore, no offense was identified.

3. If it was called a foul, would it have been a red card offense?

No, based on my position/angle of the play. It is possible there were other defensive players in the area.
