NEW YORK, N.Y. - D.C. United forward Eddie Johnson has been suspended for one game by Major League Soccer for a reckless challenge on Montreal goalkeeper Troy Perkins last weekend.

Johnson, left off the American preliminary World Cup roster, scored in the 84th minute to give D.C. a 1-1 tie with Montreal on Saturday.

MLS said Tuesday that the MLS Players Union unsuccessfully appealed the penalty for the reckless challenge, which occurred in the 60th minute. Johnson also was fined for making contact with the face of Montreal defender Wandrille Lefevre following the challenge with Perkins.

In addition, the MLS disciplinary committee doubled the suspension of Portland defender Alvas Powell to two games for a serious foul against Columbus defender Chad Barson last weekend.
