Yellow and red cards were introduced in connection with the World Cup in 1970.

Since then, 97 red cards have been handed out in tournaments, with the 2006 World Cup in Germany setting the record for the most handed out. Then 28 players had to walk early in the shower.

This year’s toilet is on the other side of the scale.

Only two red cards have been handed out in 92 group stage matches. Wales goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey received a straight red in the match against Iran after this situation:

The second came to the World Cup when Aboubakar of Cameroon saw the red after two yellow cards in a 1-0 win over Brazil. Take it all with a smile.

The statistics amaze TV 2 experts.

On TV 2’s WC podcast Yao Amankwah and Morton Langley discuss what could be the cause.

– Some theories would suggest that many teams have become more organized, so there are not many Coco interventions. It could also be better referees, or the players are in better shape because they’re in the middle of the season, they have a better rhythm and they fall behind, Amano says.

Red cards in the World Cup

  • 2022: 2 (one of them is direct red)

It is also believed that the video arbitration VAR, which was used for the first time in an international tournament during the 2018 World Cup in Russia, may be the reason.

It could be because they are more careful not to take cheap yellow cards, or because they know they can be obtained with a VAR.

Yellow and red cards in the toilet all the time:

221 yellow / 4 red

  • Brazil 2014:
    181 yellow / 10 red
  • South Africa 2010:
    253 yellow / 17 red
  • Germany 2006:
    345 yellow / 28 red
  • South Korea 2002:
    266 yellow / 16 red
  • France 1998:
    254 yellow / 22 red
  • So far in the water cycle:
    159 yellow / 2 red

Including the two yellow cards for Abu Bakr, the number of yellow cards in the World Cup in Qatar reaches 159.

On the last day of the World Cup group stage, the referees distributed 25 yellow cards. More cards were presented as controversy broke out between the Serbian and Swiss stars.

TV 2 expert Morton Langley believes the evolution of football may be the reason for the low figures in recent world championships.

– I think there are some codes of honor among players who have changed. I remember from the 1980s how the best players got eliminated. At the time, there was more prestige among defenders to Jerf Al Afdal, but that is no longer the case.

– Rarely do we see daily stars taken out of matches due to rough and brutal play from the opposition.

Langley also believes that the card issuance list is lower than previously.

– VAR and the fact that you can be sent off based on the number of yellow cards is probably a factor as well. He says I’m not sure what’s more important.

Today’s modern technology can affect players who previously used “dirty tactics” to destroy the opponent.

– At least for the players who previously thought that as long as they were out of judgment and the main camera, they could do a tough job, but now everyone seems to have a camera all the way through.

Remember these expulsions?

History has recorded many expulsions.

In 1982, an Argentine soccer icon was sent off when he kicked Brazilian midfielder Joao Batista’s groin five minutes before kick-off. Argentina lost the match 3-0 and was eliminated in the round of 16 in Maradona’s first World Cup.

England’s Wayne Rooney was sent off against Portugal in 2006, after he stepped on Portuguese Alberto Ricardo Carvalho.

The red card is particularly memorable because superstar Cristiano Ronaldo appeared on camera after his Manchester United team-mate was sent off.

Luis Suarez was sent off in 2010 when he made a hand (!) save on the goal line against Ghana. The incident occurred in the final minutes of extra time.

Ghana was awarded a penalty kick but missed, which meant exit from the World Cup.
