There has been two red cards at Euro 2020 so far.

  • Grzegorz Krychowiak – POLAND vs Slovakia
  • Ethan Ampadu – WALES vs Italy
  • Harry Wilson – WALES vs Denmark

Interestingly, both red cards were handed out by the same referee – Ovidiu Hategan of Romania.

What is the suspension?

Well, according to the Regulations of the Uefa European Football Championship article 52, a player who is sent off the pitch is suspended for the next game.

And red card suspensions that cannot be served during the competition can be carried forward to the FIFA World Cup.

But the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body is also permitted to increase the punishment, and that can be extended to other competitions.
