Parkhurst said that referee Alan Kelly said Bradley didn't touch Martinez's upper body. However, Kelly did give Bradley a yellow card and Atlanta United the penalty kick. Josef Martinez missed the penalty kick.
“Maybe a red card, I don’t know the rules,” Atlanta United manager Frank de Boer said. “You see a lot of times they give a red card in that moment and maybe a penalty.”
Toronto’s Nicolas Benezet scored three minutes later to tie the game at one.
