World Cup Referee Give 10 Red Cards In One Match

Argentine referee, Facundo Tello, who is among the 36 referees selected for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, on Sunday gave 10 red cards in a domestic cup final.

The match between Racing Club and Boca Juniors ended 2-1 in the Trofeo de Campeones de la Superliga final.

The 40-year-old referee according to The Mirror, showed seven players red cards in the aftermath of teenager Carlos Alcaraz’s last-gasp winner in extra-time adding that the referee’s willingness to to dismiss that much players may be a concern to international chiefs ahead of the World Cup.

Boca took the lead at the Estadio Parque La Pedrera in the 19th minute when Armenia international, Norberto Briasco, scored with a left-footed strike. Yet Racing were back on level terms just moments later thanks to Paraguayan Matias Rojas’ long-range strike.

Neither team could find a breakthrough in normal time, which ended with some handbags between Boca’s Sebastian Villa and Racing’s Johan Carbonero. A lot of referees would’ve waved play on – but not Tello, who sent both players off.

Racing gained a numerical advantage in the 100th minute when Alan Varela was dismissed. The Avellaneda club made that count in the dying minutes of extra-time, as Alcaraz scored a header and claimed their first trophy in three years.
