Fernando Torres Trip for Red Card

155 0

Another bad call by the referee, Fernando Torres was tripped but not intentionally. The Chilean defender, Marco Estrada, was looking for the ball and not trying to prevent Torres from getting into a goal scoring position. Estrad nicks Torres with his knee as he’s rushing to get back.

Fortuantely, Chile was still able to advance to the round of 16 despite having to play most of the game with 10 men.
