18 Yellow Cards and 1 Red Card, Netherlands Vs Argentina Becomes the Hardest Match in World Cup History

Referee Antonio Mateu had to issue 18 yellow cards and 1 red card in the match between the Dutch national team and the Argentine national team in the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup.

Of the 18 yellow cards, two of them were for Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni and his assistant Walter Samuel.

The Netherlands and Argentina played aggressively and hard from the early minutes at the Lusail Iconic Stadium, Lusail, Saturday (10/12/2022) early morning WIB.

A total of 48 violations also occurred, with 30 being committed by the Netherlands and 18 by Argentina in the last eight of the 2022 World Cup.

Denzel Dumfries Red Card

Argentina managed to eliminate the Netherlands from the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup by winning 4-3 on penalties after a 2-2 draw for 120 minutes.

Three yellow cards and a red card came out of Antonio Mateu's pocket during a high-five. Dutch defender Denzel Dumfries received two yellow cards and one red card.

Meanwhile, another yellow card was awarded to the Dutch winger, Noa Lang.

The Netherlands vs Argentina match was the toughest match in World Cup history based on the number of yellow cards.

BBC Review 

Argentina got ten of the 18 yellow cards, while the rest went to the Netherlands.

Denzel Dumfries' red card was sparked by his altercation with the Argentinian players when Lautaro Martinez scored the winner in the penalty shoot-out.

"In total, 15 players on the pitch received a card. A new record for the World Cup," commented the BBC.
