After aggressively protesting to the referee that one of his players had been hit, Carlos Queiroz was sent off in the last minutes of normal time in Egypt’s African Cup of Nations match against Cameroon.With the score tied at 90 minutes, an altercation involving Ramadan Sobhi and Nouhou Tolo erupted, prompting Queiroz to loudly protest on the touchline before being removed.
The veteran manager was initially shown a yellow card on 87 minutes, having complained to the linesman, and was banished away from the pitch after picking up another caution just a matter of minutes later.Following Sobhi and Tolo’s coming-together, the cameras quickly cut to footage of Queiroz, 68, having to be pulled away from the match officials by his assistant.
His screams were picked up by pitchside microphones as he pleaded with Bakary Gassama, the guy in the center, that his forward had been struck by his opponent. However, replays did not show any contact, and Queiroz was given a red card, meaning he would now miss the final. Despite his continued protests, the tactician was ultimately escorted out from the tense situation, with one of his backroom employees soothing him.
Roger De Sa, Queiroz’s assistant, was almost given the same punishment, but was only given a yellow card when the manager was penalised for dissent.Throughout the match, the man in charge was frequently observed disputing the referee’s decisions.Meanwhile, after his red card, it was shockingly found that no Egypt player has received more cards than their manager, who now has three.
