Why Wasn't Iniesta Sent Off For The Second Yellow?
Hisperati (Barcelona) 6 years ago
Why wasn't Iniesta sent off for the second yellow he got in the same game? I thought the rule was, 'A second yellow card at the same game leads to a red card, and therefore to a sending-off. '

I certainly didn't see him get a second card.... The only one he got was when he took his shirt off

The ref was just being fair, he had let the Dutch off the hook a few times. He was trying to avoid handing out a red card for as long as possible to not spoil the final. Funny thing is, there was absolutly nothing to spoil!

He only received one yellow card; when he took his jersey off, but remember that when he knocked off van Bommel, he was not booked

So what happened to the rules? Why didn't two yellows make a red?

There was only one yellow given as far as I know (116').... No rules were broken if that was the case. When (what minute) were the two yellows given?

He got one in minute 68 according to what I saw (and what all my friends saw). It is recorded that way in many places see Link:
But if FIFA.Com says he only got one, then he only got one.

Did anyone else see him get a card for his shove of Van Bommel in the 68th minute?

He should have been booked about ten times, but he didn't get two yellow
