- Hazard lends his first service to Madrid
- Ancelotti adds soldiers: “Hazard and Isco has a meaning”
- The last big change of the new Bernabéu is underway
Toni Kroos has a baggage already behind him. The experienced German midfielder has seen it all in football, from deep disappointments to triumphs as big as the World Cup or the Champions League. However, based on his reaction on the pitch, he had never received such a surreal yellow card in his career like the one he saw yesterday in Elche.
It happened in the final stretch of the round of 16 match between the whites and the team from Elche. With the duel still even and a lot of tension due to the uncertainty of its outcome, a dispute between the Madrid player and the local Tete Morente ended with cardboard for Kroos and a monumental anger of the Teutonic .
After the referee signaled the foul Kroos le assured between fuss that in no case had he touched his rival, something that confirmed the repetition of the play on television.
However, Figueroa Vázquez considered that the move, and especially Kroos's gestures, deserved a punishment in the form of a card.
Yellow card. Ofcourse. https://t.co/DZncR5vPMt
