Portugal U20 player grabs red card from ref. Doh


19th, July 2007


A few of Portugal’s U-20 squad react, how can I put this, like spoilt kids, in the dying minutes of their 1-0 loss to tournament favourites Chile in the U-20 World Cup, currently taking place in Canada (Czech Republic will play the winners of Chile vs Argentina in the final, by the way).

Here’s a handy tip for all young players: it’s generally a very bad idea to snatch the red card out of the ref’s hand as he’s trying to send off your team-mate – unless you want said ref to grab it straight back and shove it in your face too.

    Did the guy hand the red card back to the ref? Or maybe the ref had another red card in his pocket?

    Is it me or are all footballers little bitches these days?

    As Portuguese I’m embarrassed by these spoiled brats. They don’t deserve to win a single game. Probably that’s way we never won anything important and most likely never will.
