While Zinedine Zidane's red card was unfortunate for both the player and the team, Josip Simunic's was more comedic. Not that Graham Poll would think so.
Simunic was the recipient of three yellow cards before being given his red card in a 2006 World Cup group game against Australia.
The Croatian defender was given his first yellow card in the 61st minute, received a second in the 90th minute, and a third after the game ended. It was not until his third card, given for dissent, did Graham Poll actually give him his marching orders.
Here is Poll's explanation as presented by BBC;
"In explaining his actions to the committee, Poll said he incorrectly noted down the name of the Australia number three Craig Moore when booking Simunic for the second time and failed to realise his error."
