MANCHESTER, England (AP) Manchester United's 2-0 win over Sunderland in the English Premier League on Saturday was overshadowed by referee Roger East appearing to dismiss the wrong Black Cats player.

East pointed to the spot in the second half after Radamel Falcao was felled by John O'Shea. However, it was his teammate Wes Brown who was sent off.

East's decision occurred on the same day that soccer's rule-makers ruled out the imminent use of video technology.
