Continuation and end of this best of the most beautiful expulsions in the history of football. Today on the show: Zizou’s header, Chapron’s kick and Barreto’s punch.

WTF evictions (continued)

Zinedine Zidane / France – Italy

World Cup 2006.

Without a doubt, the most emblematic expulsion in the history of French football. Reaching the World Cup final is not easy. The Blues have only managed it three times. The second time takes place in Germany, against the Italian neighbor. The French are taken to extra time. Then, at minute 110, it’s the apotheosis.

As he recovers, Zizou turns around and inflicts a sublime headbutt to Marco Materazzi’s chest. Zidane sees red, as does the referee. The Blues eventually lose in the penalty shootout, but everyone remembers this fact of the match, forgetting the panenka-bar re-entry at the start of the match. Like in 1998, it was through his header that Zizou made history.

But he is not the only French hero this evening. Another also takes the light.

“Ooooh Zinedine! Not that Zinedine. Not today, not now, not after all you’ve done! Oh oh oh oh oh » T. Gilardi

Josip Simunic / Croatia – Australia

World Cup 2006.

Croatia and Australia meet in the final match of the group stage of the 2006 World Cup. About the hour of play, Josip Simunic is guilty of a foul near his surface, first yellow card.

We played the 90th minute, and the center-back achieved the feat of committing three fouls in a single action. Positioned as the last defender, Josip first puts the Australian forward on the ground, before taking charge of his teammate. A first intervention with the foot forward, then a second from behind with both feet off the ground. A delicious recital. But nothing to offend English referee Graham Poll. The latter only gets a yellow card. Small problem, he is the second, but the Englishman does not visibly remember him anymore.

Josip Simunic wants his expulsion. So the Croatian redoubles efforts until the time of the money to get it. Seeing that he couldn’t get the red card from him with his killer tackles, Josip decided to choose another method; the swear words And he hits the target, the Croatian is excluded in extra time for a third yellow card.

Kieran Gibbs/Chelsea-Arsenal

Premier League: 2013-2014.

Matches between Chelsea and Arsenal often lead to unlikely scenarios. And the one from the 2014 edition is not far behind the others. From the 7th minute of the game, the Blues already win 2-0. So when Oxlade-Chamberlain deflects the ball with his hand on his line, the referee does not hesitate to show the red card. Problem, Andre Marriner believes that it was Kieran Gibbs who was to blame for this trap. The English referee does not want to know anything, despite Chamberlain’s dedication. Gibbs freaks out and has yet to figure out why.

For the little anecdote, the game will end with a score of 6-0 for Chelsea. What better way for Arsene Wenger to celebrate his 1,000th game in charge of Arsenal?

“It is one of the worst games of my career. After 20 minutes, the game was over. Then it’s a long time » A. Wenger

Pierre-Yves Polomat – Michaël Barreto / Quevilly-Rouen – Auxerre

League 2: 2017-2018.

We played the 80th minute, and Auxerrois fell to Quevilly-Rouen (3-1). The tension rises and ends up exploding between Pierre-Yves Polomat and Michaël Barreto. Small detail that is important, the two players wear the same shirt, the AJA. Polomat headbutts Barreto, when the latter responds with a punch. All in the middle of a game. It takes the intervention of a player from Quevilly-Rouen to separate the two men, the world turned upside down. Results ? Two expulsions for Auxerre. The account is good.


Rui Costa / Germany – Portugal

Preliminary rounds of the 1998 FIFA World Cup.

Portugal approaches qualifying for the 1998 World Cup as the home tournament. A defeat against Ukraine and two draws against Armenia and Northern Ireland. Make believe that the Portuguese did not want to land in France in July 98. But the Seleção is still a great nation, so watching the World Cup on TV is not really their hobby. This is why the Portuguese decide to move in the final matches. The observation is simple; if he fails to prevail in Germany, he will be able to withdraw from the World Cup.

Everything starts well for them. Pedro Barbosa opened the scoring in the 71st minute, freeing the Portuguese. Then a monstrous time-saving enterprise will begin. Luis Figo’s teammates gloat on the ground at the slightest touch, throwing long tirades at the referee. The latter is none other than Frenchman Marc Batta. And in Marseillais we don’t do it. When the fourth referee asks for the substitution of Rui Costa, the Portuguese wanders, pulls up his socks, hugs his teammates on the pitch, the feeling of achievement. Batta urges him several times to hurry up, which doesn’t seem to faze our lap of honour. dude Ruy Costa.

This is clearly too much for the referee who decides to give him a yellow card. Small problem, this is the second collected by Rui Costa. The Portuguese leaves in tears, and can only feel sorry for himself when he sees Ulf Kirsten equalize with ten minutes remaining. Portugal will never see the 98 World Cup.

Samuel Inkoom / Karpaty Lviv – Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk

Ukrainian Championship: 2011-2012.

This is the story of Samuel Inkoom, defender of Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, who is about to be substituted. The Ghanaian trots off, then mechanically removes his shirt before making way for his teammate. Except this harmless gesture doesn’t escape the referee. The latter takes his prettiest cookie out of the Dnipro player for taking off his shirt. The second. Excluded a few meters from his substitute. The Ukrainian style.

Yannick Cahuzac / Angers – Bastia

League 1: 2016-2017.

After the legendary slowness that Rui Costa embodies, this time we have the ardor of Yannick Cahuzac. A player from Bastia, the defensive midfielder is known and recognized for his passion for bloody reds. And on this afternoon in February 2017, the followers of the SCO of Angers will realize that this legend is real.

With 20 minutes remaining, the Bastiais lose 2-0 and Cahuzac is suspended. For once, the defensive midfielder was flawless on the pitch, with no yellow cards to his name, almost a miracle. Everything goes well, until the moment when Yannick has to give up his place. In a very clumsy gesture, the fourth official hits him with the marker at throat height. Cahuzac doesn’t need more to get off his hinges, and violently hit the billboard. The fourth official informs the man at the whistle of the action, who persuades the latter to exclude Cahuzac, already on the sidelines. The departure of a king.

Fights with the referee

Thiago Silva / PSG – Valenciennes

League 1: 2012-2013.

Shortly before the break, Thiago Silva tries to have an explanation for a decision made by the match referee, Alexandre Castro. The Brazilian puts his hands on the shoulders of the referee, which does not please the latter at all. direct red. The reason ? Having been stopped short.

In the corridors of the stadium, Leonardo also tries to explain himself to the referee and pushes him in turn with his shoulder. Decidedly, everyone wants to play rockstar Alexandre Castro.

Diego Carlos / Nantes – PSG

League 1: 2017-2018.

Here we are touching the Holy Grail of anything. And as if by chance, it takes place on French soil, inside our incredible Liguaina. PSG beats Beaujoire 1-0, the Canary Islands try their best in the hope of leveling. The people of Nantes discover themselves and suffer a violent reaction from Kylian Mbappé. The action dwindles to nothing, then a crowd forms around Tony Chapron. The referee is on the ground, and gets up with difficulty kicking Diego Carlos. The misunderstanding is total, the Farmer’s League is more than ever at the top of its game.

Tony Chapron thinks Diego Carlos tripped him up on purpose. But in reality, it was the referee who entered the Brazilian’s career and caused his own fall. But the “referee-tackler” clings to the idea of ​​him, and draws a second yellow card, synonymous with red for Diego Carlos. The icing on the cake, he called a free kick in favor of PSG for “a foul on Monsieur Chapron”. Full circle.

Marcelo / Angers-Lyon

League 1: 2017-2018.

Don’t you consider yourself lucky in life? You’ll quickly put things into perspective with this red card from Marcelo. Author of a foul on Baptiste Santamaría, Marcelo receives a yellow card. Decision that does not seem to suit him, so the Brazilian turns his back on the referee and protests by raising his arms in the air. Missing bounce for him, his arm goes up at the same time that the referee’s goes down. Marcelo inadvertently hits the yellow card, which falls to the ground. Enough to convince the referee to drop the only card he has left; the Red. An unrivaled alignment of the planets.

Lyon, who led 3-1 before this expulsion, is finally joined 3-3. All’s well That ends well.
