8. REF WATCH: Brazilian official gets holiday for misdirected red
Brazilian Rodrigo Martins Cintra has been banned indefinitely for
ejecting the wrong player in a Corinthians-Rio Branco game.
In the first half, Rio Branco's Josias tripped a Corinthians player but
Cintra showed a yellow card to Felipe, who, because he had already been
cautioned, was red-carded.
"He thought it was one player but it was a different one," said Marcos
Marinho, the head of the Paulista soccer federations referees committee. "He
needs some time to get over it."
