It’s not often we see 2 cards within a minute of each other, and even more rare is in this instance both cards are for the same team for the same offence.
We have Lim explain the impact of the small touches of the ball after the whistle has gone and also why in these situations the cards can both be greens. It’s a myth that the same offence to the same team always has to be progressed to the next level penalty (i.e. we give a green first and then a yellow to any player on the same team who commits the same offence as the green card). Lim shows us how we can shift our thoughts on this and how it earns more respect from the players because it better reflects the actual impact of those fouls on the game.
