Welsh Goalkeeper Receives First-Ever World Cup Dismissal For Karate Tackle In Qatar 2022

At the ongoing Qatar 2022 World Cup, Wales goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey received the tournament’s first red card.

It happened after he landed a head-high karate kick on the opponent. The incident also saw the team reduced to 10.

In the 2-0 loss to Iran, Nottingham Forest’s goalkeeper saw the tournament’s first red card after raising a high-head kick against his opponent.

Late in the game, Iran’s Mehdi Taremi was collided with outside the area by Hennessey, who had rushed off his 18-yard box to stop the attacker from getting a through pass.

The Wales goalkeeper rushed off his line to confront the Iran striker before giving him a “karate kick” to the head.

With the help of the video assistant referee, the 35-year-old goalkeeper’s original yellow card was changed to a red one in the 86th minute (VAR).
