This Czech Republic club did the unexpected in a match, making world football history
The Czech football club Sokol from Úpohlavy made history in world football after its 16 players simultaneously received yellow cards. The incident occurred in an amateur national championship match against Sokol from Libochovany.
In the 55th minute, the guests were losing 0:6. In the 82nd minute, Martin Blížil scored for the team from Úpohlavy, and the Sokol players who were on the field and the bench took off their shirts. The head referee, David Mojžiš, had to punish everyone with a mustard card.
4 minutes later, the players from Úpohlavy scored again, but this time they did not put on any kind of performance.
"Now we are losing almost all the matches. During the break, we told ourselves that we needed to score at least a goal. Someone in the locker room offered to take off their clothes if we did. In the 82nd minute, it finally happened," the Vojtěch Horký player explained the situation to TN .cz.
The midfielder admitted that the club does not have a system of penalties for optional yellow cards.
"We don't have any fines, so we won't pay anything. We pay with our play. We have a system where the one who receives a meaningless yellow card treats everyone to a beer in the pub," Horký said with a smile.
"Sokol Úpohlavy is in penultimate tenth place in the table after ten games played, with only three points." Sokol Libochovany are fourth.
