Fastest international red card ever: Rashed Al Hooti (Bahrain) sent off after 43 seconds v Iran

It’s this type of thing that leads to a 6-0 tonking.

It seems unnecessary to write that it was a ridiculous challenge to be making so early in the game – but it really was ridiculous.

Footage of Rashed Al Hooti (Bahrain) picking up the fastest international red card v Iran is here.
