It’s A Clear Red: Podolski Kicks Dzeko

Ouch! Podolski Should Have Seen Red.

How Lukas Podolski only got a yellow card for this tackle on Dzeko is a mystery to me. I hope I’m wrong, but I think that means that because he was booked no retrospective action can be taken. He should have gone for me, it’s an awful challenge.

    You’re right, no retrospective action is possible. (They can only do that if the referee has not seen and evaluated the incident.)

    I don’t think it was on purpose, though, at least he talked to Dzeko at half time and apologized. Still he was lucky to escape with a yellow.

      I agree…it definitely didn’t look intentional. Just a combination of recklessness and bad hand/eye coordination.
