Many red cards are controversial – either undeserved or completely backwards. In a few cases, you may question the sanity of the referee.
Bad Red Cards
For example, in the Brazil – Ghana world cup match 2006-06-27, a Ghana attack penetrated the Brazilian defense into their penalty area. He splits two defenders but loses the ball. He continues forward to challenge for a loose ball, but the ball is cleared by a defender. The defender, never touched, pretends to be fouled, and should have been sent off. The attacker stumbles only slightly, and recovers his balance without touching the ground. The moronic referee issued a straight red – an astonishing result.
