Some England Fans Think Ante Rebic Was Shown Two Yellow Cards

It's normal that England fans feel a tad hard done by following their World Cup exit at the hands of Croatia, but some were led to believe that they were cheated out of it by referee Cuneyt Cakir.

Courtesy of a viral Facebook video featuring match footage of the game, a whole lot of people felt that Croatia winger Ante Rebic was shown two yellow cards during the game and therefore should have been sent off in Moscow.

The clip appears to highlight the Croatia No.18 being booked in the 48th minute, before getting a second caution in extra time. ITV commentator Clive Tyldesley even said Rebic had saw yellow.

However, as much as we'd love it to be true, the match official didn't go all Graham Poll on us. When Rebic was penalised for catching Kyle Walker with a flailing arm at the end of the first half, a yellow card wasn't brandished towards him - it was shown to Mandzukic for punching the ball away in frustration.

The 24-year old was only booked in the sixth minute of extra time for a mistimed tackle on Danny Rose, so despite constant calls for Croatia to be disqualified, there was no error - just plenty of confusion.

Croatia have been involved in a World Cup card mix-up before though - as it took three yellows before Poll gave Josip Šimunić his marching orders in a group stage game with Australia back in 2002.
