The main referee of the match of the Cup of Portugal between the women’s teams of Benfica and Sporting (5:0) showed a white card to the physiotherapists of both clubs at the end of the first half.
The English media write that this is the first time in the history of football that this color of cardboard has been shown.
The white card is a novelty in football, with it they want to encourage fair play.
In the Benfica – Sporting match this was shown after both medical teams reacted when a player fell ill.
The video circulating on the Internet shows how a doctor does not understand why he was shown a white card. The audience responded with applause.
This is 𝐁𝐈𝐙𝐀𝐑𝐑𝐄 🤯
