New York, NY (Sports Network) - An independent review panel has rescinded the fine and one-game suspension for a red card issued to Seattle Sounders FC striker Obafemi Martins, it was announced Wednesday.

Martins was issued a red card in the 71st minute of Seattle's victory over Chivas USA on Saturday, an infraction that carries a one-match suspension.

The punishment, however, has been overturned, making Martins available for the club's match against Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Saturday.
