The left-back suffered a minute of madness and left his teammates short for the last twenty minutes of the game
Ashley Cole received two yellow cards within 32 seconds of each other as the LA Galaxy drew 1-1 with Sporting Kansas City last night.
Cole was booked initially for time-wasting as he delayed over a throw-in. His studs-up tackle just moments later left the referee with no option but to send off the former Arsenal, Chelsea and England left-back.

LA Galaxy, who were without Steven Gerrard due to injury, went behind when Brad Davis curled past Brian Rowe after 30 minutes but former Barcelona and Spurs star Giovanni dos Santos levelled matters just 12 minutes later.
Cole was sent off on 70 minutes with LA forced to grind out a reult for the remaining 20 minutes of the game.
