The Chicago Fire scored the first goal of the evening against the Seattle Sounders on Saturday on a pair of questionable calls.
First, Tony Alfaro was whistled for a foul in the box on Nemanja Nikolic. Second, Stefan Frei saved David Accam’s penalty kick, but the referee issed the kick to be retaken for what seems to be encroachment. Nikolic scored on the second attempt.
Videos of both plays are below:
