Qatar 2022 World Cup Referee Issues 10 Red Cards In Argentina Cup Final

Qatar 2022 World Cup-bound referee Facundo Tello gave out 10 red cards in Argentina’s Champions Trophy final on Sunday between Racing Club and Boca Juniors.

Racing Club midfielder Carlos Alcaraz sparked a melee in front of the Boca Juniors fans with his match-winning goal celebration.

With the score line tied at 1-1 in the final minutes of extra time, Alcaraz headed into the corner of the net to win it for Racing Club.

However, his extended celebration in front of the opposition’s fans infuriated the Boca players, with video showing them grabbing Alcaraz by the ear and throwing a ball at him.

Then 40-year-old referee, Tello, sent Alcaraz off and issued five red cards to Boca players after the scuffles.

In all, seven red cards were shown to Boca players and three from Racing over the course of the match.

Norberto Briasco had opened the scoring for Boca before Racing’s Matias Rojas equalised in the first half.

In 2019, Tello entered the roster of international referees for FIFA as he was appointed by Conmebol as a fourth official for the South American U-20 Championship in Chile.
