Jordanian player enters football history with fastest expulsion (video)
The player of the Jordan youth team, Bakr Kamal Kalbouni, entered the history of football in the world with a negative historical number, in the confrontation of the Jordanian team with Tajikistan in the U-20 Asian Cup, after receiving a red card after only 5 seconds of the match, becoming one of the 10 fastest players to be expelled in the history of football.
The incident dates back to moments from the whistle at the beginning of the match, as it saw the intervention of the Jordan national team player Al-Kalboni on one of the players of the Tajikistan national team, by raising his foot high to catch a ball, but it collided with the face of his opponent, and the referee, who was close to announcing the red card in the face of the Jordan national team player after only 5 seconds from its start, did not hesitate, and the player became one of the 10 fastest players to be expelled in the history of football, a few seconds behind the leaders of the list.
Al-Kalbouni entered the list of the fastest players to obtain red cards in the history of football, and he will be the fastest player to receive expulsion in the Arab world, while at the global level there are few cases, including, in the French league during the current season 2022-2023, where Jean-Clair Todibo, former Barcelona defender, won the title of the fastest red card in the 21st century in the French league, after he received a red card just 9 seconds after the start of his team's match Nice against Angers, to break the record The previous record which was 40 seconds.
The strangest sending off went to Lee Todd in 2000, who was sent off just two seconds after kick-off of the Cross Farm match against Taunton East Rick Wonderers for a verbal error, saying after the first whistle: "me, it was high", and for being close to the referee immediately punished him with a red card.
A Jordanian player makes history with the fastest red card!
