Home / La Liga / Iker Casillas’ Absurd Red Card


Iker Casillas was sent off during a recent match against Espanol for this tackle. Now I’ll admit, at first glance this looks to be a bad one, and when I saw it live I thought he deserved to be sent off, but after watching this replay I’ve changed my mind. It’s a case of the forward feeling contact and taking a dive.

Hard luck Iker, better luck next time you put on the Real Madrid jersey.
