NEW YORK -- Vancouver Whitecaps FC goalkeeper Paolo Tornaghi was suspended for one game and fined an undisclosed amount Friday for entering the field of play during a game against Real Salt Lake last weekend.
The incident occurred as Vancouver's Sebastian Fernandez scored in the 94th minute of the 2-2 draw last Saturday. Tornaghi ran on to the pitch to celebrate the goal with his teammates.
The Major League Soccer disciplinary committee also fined D.C. United forward Eddie Johnson an undisclosed amount for raising his hands to the face and head of FC Dallas defender Zach Loyd last Saturday.
D.C. United went on to win the game 4-1.
