- David Wagner was very hard done by during the victory of Schalke vs Hertha Berlin
- After the Schalke boss tried to help an opponent, he received a red card
- The former Huddersfield manager could not & # 39; t believes his eyes when he was sent away
Schalke finally won the spirited German cup competition 3-2 after extra time
David Wagner became the last victim of VAR farce on On Tuesday evening the Schalke boss received a red card because he tried to help an opponent stand up.
With Schalke locked 2-2 with Hertha Berlin in the German Cup during extra time, Wagner was accidentally smashed by defender Jordan Torunarigha, who was tackled at the sidelines in the 100th minute .
The former manager of Huddersfield decided to drag the Hertha Berlin player back to his feet by gently placing his hands near the neck of Torunarigha.
Torunarigha lost his temper after being helped by Wagner, the Schalke manager shrugs off before he angrily throws a bottle holder on the floor.
The Hertha player, who witnessed to his team a two-goal lead, was then given his marsorders by referee Harm Osmers after being shown a second yellow card.
The drama did not end there, however, when VAR decided to intervene, and to the great fright of Wagner and everyone watching, the manager was given a straight red for his role on the sidelines.
Wagner protested for a while after the Veltins-Arena crowd was left astonished, but luckily for the hosts, the resignation of their manager had no negative impact on them.
In the 115th minute, Schalke turned the game upside down after delivering the winner thanks to Benito Raman.
The Schalke substitute ran away from the counterattack after a Hertha corner to slide quietly between the legs of goalkeeper Rune Jarstein.
And after the last whistle on Tuesday, Wagner revealed his shock about the red card decision.
Wagner said: & I cannot explain my red card. I looked back and my hand was around his neck, but I tried to help him stay up. He then threw the crate of water. & # 39;
Jose Mourinho left fuming while Raheem Sterling escaped further punishment for reckless challenge on Dele Alli … but VAR considers a tackle not worthy of a red card
- Raheem Sterling trampled on Dele Alli's only during the first half of Sunday's clash
- Sterling was booked for the tackle that left Alli wriggling on the floor
- A VAR assessment ruled that Sterling's tackle was not worth a red card
- Mourinho and his assistant, Joao Sacramento, responded with disgust to the touchline
Sterling trampled on Alli's only halfway through the first half, causing England's international struggle to fall to the ground.
Sterling tried to apologize to Alli, who stumbled from the field before returning to the Spurs Medical Team after a few minutes of treatment.
Sterling received a yellow card, but a VAR assessment of the tackle found it was not worth a red card – although Mourinho did not agree.
The Portuguese watched a repeat of the incident on a touchline monitor and then made a gesture to the fourth official who suggested that he should wear glasses.
Mourinho then continued to show his aversion to the decision as the game went on, while his assistant, Joao Sacramento, seemed equally unhappy.
Sky Sports expert Graeme Souness believed M ike Dean was right to only give Sterling a yellow card.
He said: & I think because he is standing upright, because he does not drop out, he comes away with a yellow card. If he had gone to the ground with the same challenge, I think he would be sent away.
& # 39; We know that Raheem Sterling is not that type of player. I don't think he wanted to hurt Dele Alli there, his English teammate. But I think he has been careless there, and that definitely deserves a yellow card. & # 39;
Chris Hughton, however, felt that Sterling was lucky enough to escape with a yellow one. I think it's a limit, & he said. & # 39; Sterling knew that you could see afterwards that he might have caught him.
& # 39; That makes it possible that a yellow as opposed to a red. But there will certainly be circumstances this season in which someone is sent out for that. & # 39;
The incident was the culmination of a sloppy opening of half an hour, but it seemed to bring the game to life at the end of the first half.
Manchester City received a penalty after Sergio Aguero was shot down by Serge Aurier in the penalty area.
But the effort of Ilkay Gundogan was saved by Hugo Lloris, who then plunged to stop Sterling from achieving Sterling the rebound, with the winger on the ground.
City's calls for a second penalty went to a VAR assessment, but officials found that Lloris had not made contact with the winger's outstretched leg.
Mourinho was again irritated on the sidelines Sterling receives a second yellow card and is sent away, but Mike Dean has chosen not to punish him.
But Souness again supported Sterling and said that his speed and momentum meant that he went to the ground as he stretched to the ball.
& # 39; I think Raheem already fell when he got to the ball, & he added. & # 39; Lloris is off his line, so it should have been recaptured.
& # 39; I think he's running so fast, and when the ball is there to get, you get the momentum and the excitement, he doesn't have his feet where they should be. I don't think he's diving there. & # 39;
& # 39; Getting through the Mike Dean energy & # 39 ;: Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster lent brutal yellow card to referee during goal scoring in Swansea & # 39; s draw against Preston
- Rhian Brewster showed a yellow card for the referee in the Swansea draw in Preston
- The attacker scored the equalizing goal for the Swans in a 1-1 draw at Deepdale
- But the 19-year-old was booked in the second half for a serious mistake
Brewster not only bundled the tying goal in Deepdale, the attacker also had spectators in laughter when he showed a yellow card to referee Geoff Eltringham.
Eltringham had accidentally dropped the card and the youngster, who scored his second goal in his fourth swan appearance, emulated Paul Gascoigne by theatrically pushing the card to the official.
And the 19-year-old made the incident clear by retweeting images on Twitter, accompanied by the caption: & # 39; Comi through with the Mike Dean energy. & # 39;
Brewster, who is under contract in Liverpool until 2023, tapped 33 minutes on Andre Ayew's cross, just five minutes after Scott Sinclair had given the hosts the lead.
But it wasn't all positive for the England Under-21 international because Eltringham only showed Brewster a yellow card for ten minutes in the second half.
The attacker was probably happy to avoid a red card after he seemed to raise both feet in a challenge on North End midfielder Ben Pearson.
The draw leaves Swansea four points behind on the playoffs in eighth place, while Preston is one point and one place above their opponents in the championship table.
Wigan Warriors 16-10 Warrington Wolves: hosts take advantage of Chris Hill's early red card to win bruises Super League opener
- Warrington led Thursday through 8-0 via Ben Murdoch of Tonga – Masila
- The Super League opener, however, turned away from an incident in the 23rd minute
- Chris Hill was shown in red for visitors after he crashed into the head of Sam Powell
- Powell stood motionless on the grass as a penalty and a red card was then given
- Wigan then took advantage of the red in the bruises Super League opener
Chris Hill got a red card and Sam Powell became red picked up on a stretcher when Wigan won a bruising opener for the Super League campaign.
Warrington continued 8-0 – Ben Murdoch-Masila of Tonga scored the first attempt of the season – but the game depended on the incident in the 23rd minute.
Powell was about to come down when Hill bumped his head, leaving the 27-year-old scrum-half immobile on the grass when the TV referee made the verdict of a penalty attempt and a red one Map. Powell did not succeed in his assessment of the head injury, but was good enough to view the second half from the couch.
The first half continued in the same ferocious spirit and more controversy could come on Friday after Blake Austin Wigan & Morgan accused Morgan Smithies of gushing his eye.
Wigan was midway through 12-10 thanks to the penalty attempt and an earlier piece of magic by Bevan Frans, seemingly to pass and then to push through.
Warrington stopped despite the fact that he had been reduced to 12 men, but they were back to 11 after an hour when Frans was eliminated by Mike Cooper while walking down his own stairs.
Wigan received a second penalty attempt but Cooper was sent to the sin-bin. Shortly thereafter, Liam Marshall went into the corner to give Wigan breathing room and they survived a great late push from the 11 men of Warrington.
& # 39; It was never a way out & # 39 ;: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer blows & # 39; joke & # 39; red card for Nemanja Matic after Manchester United left the Carabao Cup
Matic was sent a second yellow card for half an hour in the second half when he blocked City's Ilkay Gundogan.
The Serbian midfielder, who brought United back into the game after scoring in the first half, received his first booking when he polluted Riyad Mahrez.
Solskjaer felt referee Kevin Friend and his fellow officials had made the wrong call by sending him out.
He said: & # 39; Of course it's hard to get here and score a goal with 11, let alone 10. It was never a broadcast. Absolutely a joke for me. How often have they criticized us? & # 39;
Solskjaer added: & # 39; The first is not a yellow card. He's out of luck. I do not agree with that decision.
& # 39; We had a chance towards the end, but that made it harder of course. & # 39;
Both Darren Fletcher and Micah Richards, who appear as experts during Sky Sports coverage. , agreed with the United manager.
Former United midfielder Fletcher thought referee Friend's decision to send Matic away was bad, especially because he thought the midfielder had not had contact with Mahrez.
& # 39; I don't think Matic should have been sent away, & # 39; said Fletcher. & # 39; The first is very hard because he is not making contact.
& # 39; And the second is clever from Gundogan, I don't think there is enough contact there and the referee has bought it. & # 39;
Former city defender Richards thought it was a crucial moment that led to one of United & # 39; s better artists being broadcast, and suggested that Friend the nature of the fixture.
He said: & # 39; That moment was crucial for the game. I thought Matic was brilliant today and I don't think either should have been a yellow card. If you make mistakes, every player is booked every week.
& # 39; It's a derby, sometimes you want to see the challenges in these games. It has spoiled the game. & # 39;
Amid scenes of unbridled joy at the end of a day of pulsating drama, Europe won the Solheim Cup extraordinary back on Sunday .
Here was a miracle to place next to the miracle the men gathered in 2012 in Medina. Even with 30 minutes to go, it still looked like an epic-scale failure.
& # 39; I thought a draw at that time would be a good result, & # 39; admitted Europe's leader, Catriona Matthew. A draw would of course have meant that America, as holders, retained the trophy. Then the English law of Bronte drilled a 20ft birdie putt to send her competition Europe on the 16th road, and suddenly the miracle was happening.
Now it all came down to Suzann Pettersen, Europe & # 39; s largest Solheim player for someone who had hardly played all year round due to maternity leave. All square with the par-five 18, she just had to win her match against Marina Alex. Both players were 100 yards from the green in two.
Both played beautiful shots under extreme pressure. Both had similar putts, but Alex's was above the hole and it slid past. Now Pettersen had to make a hole from eight feet while players from both teams squatted through the green, barely able to look, and thousands of spectators held their breath.
This is how you define greatness, a player who shuts out the sound and the possibilities to deliver a nervous stroke. She may be the 635th player in the world because of her long absence, but Europe did not want anyone else to be over the putt.
"How can you ask anything else? You just have to take the moment, & said Pettersen.
She did well. A stroke as pure as you want, and when the ball disappeared, the 38-year-old Norwegian warrior made a primordial roar. In the twilight of a great career, Pettersen declared the moment so perfect, it would be her last putt.
& # 39; This is it, I am all done with professional golf, & # 39; she said.
What a way to bend. After the putt came bedlam, while hundreds of people ran onto the green. The inquisitive Matthew was carried up on tired shoulders, her hands raised in genuine triumph.
De Schot had her heart focused on winning back the trophy on her own soil, and here was her controversial selection of wildcards that completed the job. No wonder she was ecstatic.
She once won a British Open just three months after birth, but even that success paled. "This is by far the best moment I've had in golf," she said.
While Pettersen embraced her young son Herman, the other heroines of the day could not jump up and down. There was the bustling law, one with five holes to play in a critical match against Ally McDonald, but she got the job done, just as you knew she would. Charley Hull had a meltdown on the 18th, but another halved match meant three points out of four.
There was the fantastic Georgia Hall and brilliant French rookie, Celine Boutier. Only two Europeans had ever played in at least four games in a Solheim Cup and came up with maximum points – and now there are two more to join Sweden's Sophie Gustafson in 2011 and Caroline Hedwall in 2013 after this pair combined was for three wins out of three in a row and then won their respective singles games.
Both did this in a typically courageous way and came back early from two to record their victories. Hall has had a disappointing year because the 23-year-old was able to process her success in the British Open last year. But this certainly makes up for it.
For the Americans it was difficult for Captain Juli Inkster and especially the fantastic Korda sisters. Jessica and Nelly both finished with three and a half points out of four, and for a long part of Sunday's session, their contributions seemed decisive.
Both parents played tennis for the Czech Republic. Petr, their father, even won a Grand Slam in the Australian Open. But the sisters are under pressure, they can both have even more successful careers than mother or father.
What an advertisement this was for the ladies game. What an approval for women's sport. The golfers have had to take something from a back seat because the focus is on football, netball and the like. Here they showed that they can still be more than alone. This was as good as it gets.
