World Cup 2022: What are the rules on yellow and red cards, and who is suspended?



Wayne Hennessey of Wales is sent off by referee Mario Escobar during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Group B match between Wales and IR Iran at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium on November 25, 2022 in Doha, Qatar.

Unlike a league campaign, it doesn’t take much to earn yourself a ban on yellow or red cards at the World Cup.
