Very red: – scandal

On Saturday evening, the Greek Cup final between Panathinaikos and Aris was scheduled to be decided.

As the first woman, Frenchwoman Stephanie Frappart was appointed to referee the match.

And it wasn't without drama, as she was verbally attacked when she called off the match.

Strange scenes


Three red cards

The match was held at a neutral stadium in the city of Volos. Panthesaliko Stadium lacks surveillance cameras, so the authority demanded that the match be held without an audience as well.

During the match, three red cards were dealt: two to Aris and one to Panathinaikos.

It looked like the match would go to extra time, but in the seventh minute of extra time, Georgios Vagiannidis scored the winning goal for Panathinaikos.

Immediately after the score, Frappart blew the game.
