The competition decided to abandon a number of matches as protests continue in the United States
Major League Soccer has cancelled five games that were due to kick-off on Wednesday in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake.

Blake, a 29-year-old African American, was shot and injured by police on Sunday in front of his children with protests since breaking out in Wisconsin and across the country.

While MLS matches had gone ahead this week, players and fans had called on the league to take a stand and cancel games in a show of support for the black community.
