Portugal's Ricardo Costa was shown a straight red and asked to leave the pitch in a hasty manner during his side's loss to Spain on Tuesday. But why?
Well, Spain defender Joan Capdevila happened to be behind him in the 89th and just before Costa (who was something of a menace throughout the game) went up for a header, Capdevila went down holding the side of his face. Ricardo Costa was then sent off.
I'm sure there's more to this story, but you'll have to ask Joan Capdevila for all the details. Assuming he remembers them.
- Joan Capdevila
- Ricardo Costa
