From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In the 1998 FIFA World Cup the main disciplinary action taken against players came in the form of red and yellow cards. Any player picking up a red card is automatically banned for his country's next game (if it is a serious offense FIFA may extend this ban to a number of games). Players also receive a one game ban if they pick up two yellow cards within the group stage or within the knockout stage.
