Sergino Dest won’t play a part in the CONCACAF Nations League semifinals.
Dest was sent off in the 39th minute of the U.S. men’s national team’s quarterfinal second leg showdown with Trinidad & Tobago on Monday night. The 23-year-old assisted on Antonee Robinson’s opening goal in Port of Spain, but did not finish the first half on the field.
Dest was given two yellow cards in the 39th minute after not agreeing with referee Walter Lopez’s decision. Dest picked up the ball after a turnover and punted it off the field, leading Lopez to issue him a first yellow card.
The PSV defender proceeded to argue with Lopez about the decision, ultimately receiving a second yellow card and an ejection. Tim Ream, Gio Reyna, and Matt Turner were all seen in disbelief by Dest’s actions, which marked the second-consecutive Nations League tournament in which the right back was ejected in.
Joe Scally replaced Reyna before halftime, taking Dest’s spot at right back.
Despite Dest’s clear-cut talent on the field, his latest actions might see him kept out of USMNT involvement heading into 2024.
