Another record! Second World Cup's quickest red card
Colombia ace Carlos Sanchez was shown the second-quickest red card in World Cup history following his dismissal in Group H opener against Japan.
He deliberately handled the ball inside the penalty area which saw him sent off after 3 minutes of play. Referee Damir Skomina pointed to the penalty spot and Kagawa beat David Ospina from 12 yards, but Sanchez's dismissal was not the earliest in World Cup history.
That record still belongs to Jose Alberto Batista, who was given his marching orders just 54 seconds into Uruguay's final group match against Scotland at Mexico 1986.
02:56 - Carlos Sanchez's red card after two minutes and 56 seconds is the second fastest shown in World Cup history, after Jose Alberto Batista for Uruguay vs Scotland in 1986 (54 seconds). Handed. #COL #COLJPN #WorldCup— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 19, 2018
Sanchez will miss Colombia's second group game against Poland.
