Colorado Rapids head coach, Anthony Hudson, had a lot to say about the Nani incident with Kellyn Acosta during the loss of his team 4-3 to Orlando City.

With this defeat, the Rapids remained winless so far this season, but for Hudson, the Rocky Mountains team was the better team on the field, but they also should have had a man advantage as well.

That because of an incident that took place when newly MLS star and Orlando City player, Nani had an encounter with Kellyn Acosta during the 74th minute where the Portuguese went headbutting Acosta twice and referee Jari Marrufo opted not to consult the VAR, leaving Hudson upset with that decision.

"When we were at 3-2, if we do what Nani does to us, we'd be down to 10 men, I'm here asking questions why we can't keep our discipline, and it seems to be every week where it's easy for them to, you know for that to happen against us."

For Hudson, the incident doesn't diminish the fact that Orlando scored pretty good goals, but things could have been different if the Florida squad were with one less player.
