How far into the game was the fastest red card in World Cup history?
It hasn’t happened
Under a minute
Jose Batista, Uruguay’s left-back in the 1986 World Cup tournament likely thought he could get away with a yellow card when he came at a Scotland player with a hard tackle inside the first minute of play. But the referee wasn’t having it and threw Batista out of the game at 56 seconds.
Outside of the World Cup, Lee Todd of the Cross Farm Park Celtic Strikers learned during a 2000 game to watch his mouth around the ref. He got red-carded two seconds into a game for dropping an F-bomb after a loud whistle.
