Red card

(Sport: Soccer)

Definition

A player is dismissed from the field of play if the referee shows him a red card. This happens either because the player has received two yellow cards in the same match, or because the referee judges that he has committed a single offense that warrants a sendingoff in its own right. When a player has been sent off, his team must play the rest of the game with 10 players (unless further players are dismissed).
