There were no red cards in 16 meetings
At the 2022 World Cupwhich takes place in Qatar, an interesting indicator has been set.
From November 20 to 24, 16 games of the first round of the 2022 World Cup group stage took place. During these meetings, the referees did not demonstrate to the players no red cards.
In this way, for the first time in 36 years in all matches of the first round at the world championships, at least one removal was not recorded. The last time a similar incident took place at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.
It should be noted that several new records have already been set at the current championship in Qatar. For example, Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score goals in five World Cups.
In addition, the game between Uruguay and South Korea was the first in the 21st century in the history of the world championships, which ended without a shot on target.
Tomorrow, November 25, Qatar will host four group stage games: Wales – Iran (12:00 Kyiv time), Qatar – Senegal (15:00), Netherlands – Ecuador (18:00), England – USA (21:00). ).
