This is the first time in the history of football that a white card has been shown. Portugal witnessed that event. The incident happened during a match between Sporting Lisbon and Benfica’s women’s team. The referee shows the white card during the match!
We have been witnessing the green card in the field of hockey for so long. Where a player of a team is shown this card during a match, he has to stay off the field for a certain period of time. After that he got a chance to come to the field.
However, no such card was in circulation in football until now. But this time an exceptional event happened. White card is used for the first time in the history of world football. Although not in the style of hockey’s green card, the white card is used this time! It sounds unbelievable but it is true. Such an exceptional case happened in Portugal.
Incidentally, this happened for the first time in the history of football. Portugal witnessed that event. The incident happened during a match between Sporting Lisbon and Benfica’s women’s team. The referee show the white card during the match! Note that we have always seen the use of red and yellow cards in football matches.
Several initiatives have been taken in Portugal to make the game of football more interesting and more exciting. One of which is the white card.
Note that this initiative is to recognize fair play. It can be said that this idea is to encourage clean football game. And the white card was first used to advance that thing. A player fell ill in the dugout shortly before half-time in the Women’s Cup match between Sporting Lisbon and Benfica. Then the medical staff of the two teams started treating him immediately. Referee Katarina Campos showed the white card to them.
The spectators present in the stadium also applauded the referee. But long before that, UEFA president Michel Platini proposed the use of white cards. If a footballer disagreed with the referee’s decision, he said it would be shown as his punishment. Where he had to stay out of the field for 10 minutes during the match.
