The Midweek Mmm: Red Card Reactions From Algeria, Australia & Serbia

Sweaty, angry and seeing red. Three sizzling send-offs from this past week’s WC matches proved that red cards aren’t always as bad as they seem. (Well, actually they’re terrible for the players, but stay with us on this one.)
Due to Algeria’s Abdelkader Ghezzal blatant handball, we’re declaring red cards as very hot right now. Of course, this is a passing trend as Australia and Serbia need Tim Cahill and Aleksandar Lukovic calm and collected if they are to have any hopes of getting out of the early group stages.
Then again, their loss is our hump day gain so to hell with the rules. We like how good footballers look whilst being punished and would like more of it, please. In fact, we’ll gladly volunteer our best reprimanding services to FIFA if they are in need of assistance.
