At the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, we’ve already seen games that were mostly influenced by yellow and red cards – most notably Wales’ group stage clash with Iran, where goalkeeper Wayne Hennessy went out and defeated Iranian striker Mehdi Taremi. Hennessy was sent off with a red card and Wales, with ten men left, saw Iran score two stunning goals in stoppage time for a surprise win. It was the first red card of the tournament and was undoubtedly a game-changer.

Less impressive, but still notable, four players from the US received yellow cards in the Americans’ first leg against Wales – (Kellin Acosta, Tim Ream, Weston McKenny, Serginho Dest). While yellow cards are an integral part of football, players risk being booked twice and being unavailable when their team needs them most. Here are the details on how yellow cards turn into player disqualifications and what happens to cards between rounds of a tournament.

If players receive two yellow cards at the 2022 World Cup, this will result in a one-game suspension. If a player receives both warnings in the same game, he will be sent off and serve a suspension in the next match. But players can also get disqualified after accumulating two yellow cards in different matches. Therefore, once a player receives a yellow card, he is likely to think carefully about how he should proceed in a given situation to ensure that he does not go out of action at a key moment in the tournament.

Do yellow cards carry over from the group stage?

In the 2022 World Cup, yellow cards are carried over from the group stage to the round of 16. If a player receives one yellow card in the group stage and another in the 1/8 finals, he is not eligible to participate in his team’s quarter-final match. However, there is a “clean slate” from the quarter-finals to the semi-finals where all previous warnings are erased so that no player in the semi-finals is at risk of missing out on the final matches due to accumulated yellow cards at the start of the tournament.

For FIFAif the suspension cannot be served during the World Cup, it will be carried over to the team’s next official national match.

What do yellow cards mean at the World Cup?

Yellow cards are essentially warnings (also referred to as “warnings”) issued to players by match officials for a variety of infractions, including bad sportsmanship, delaying play, intentionally causing harm to another player, failing to respect the required distance from the ball when taking a penalty kick. , inappropriate language, or other situations determined by the referee and video assistant referee. If a player receives multiple yellow cards, either in the same game or in multiple games, they receive an “indirect red card” which results in a one-match ban.

Yellow cards can be a big problem for a team when it comes to missing key players, but they can also affect a team’s chances of making it through the tournament. The final tie-break to determine which teams will advance from the group stage is a team performance score or “fair play” tie-break based on the number of yellow and red cards the team has accumulated. In a situation where the teams are equal in all other tie-breaks, the side with the higher result of team behavior advances to the 1/8 finals.

The Netherlands will face Qatar in the Group A final, knowing that a victory can guarantee them first place.


Louis van Gaal’s side are equal on points (4) and goal difference (+2) with Ecuador and if they beat Ecuador’s result against Senegal in the Group A final, they will emerge as group winners. However, against Ecuador, the Dutch failed to impress and were lucky enough to achieve a 1-1 draw. It will be interesting to see if Memphis Depay is ready enough to start as LVG looks to ramp up their fitness ahead of the playoffs.

As for Qatar, they are just playing for pride as the hosts were eliminated from the tournament after just two group stage games. They are only the second host nation in World Cup history to be knocked out of the group stage, and they looked completely out of place in defeats to Ecuador and Senegal. They did score their first World Cup goal thanks to Mohammed Muntari, but overall it was a very disappointing tournament for Qatar.

Key storylines, players to keep an eye on

The Netherlands know that a big win basically guarantees them first place, meaning they will likely play one of the US or Iran in the last 16, rather than England. Louis van Gaal may not really care who they play in the playoffs, but it’s clear that Virgil van Dijk, Memphis Depay and Frenkie de Jong are the heart of this team. They need Memphis to be in good shape to start and Cody Gakpo did his best to score two goals in two games including a beautiful goal against Ecuador.

For Qatar right now, it’s all about pride and trying to cause a big shock in their last World Cup game. Manager Felix Sanchez has worked so hard to put this team together but they made big mistakes in key moments and they only really went for it in the second half against Senegal and they looked much better doing it. They have nothing to lose here, so expect Qatar to go for it right from the start.

This should be a great game in Group A as both Ecuador and Senegal still have a chance to win the group.


Ecuador picked up four points after an impressive draw with the Netherlands, and La Tri, led by Enner Valencia’s three goals, was one of the history of the tournament. The South American minnows made a strong impression and a win here could see them get a more favorable path to the playoffs. One point is enough to guarantee them a place in the round of 16, however their captain and talisman Valencia lost to the Netherlands. However, it looks like he could be ready for the Group A final, which would be a huge boost.

As for Senegal, they easily beat Qatar last time and after a strong performance against the Netherlands, they are moving into this tournament without Sadio Mane. Aliou Cisse knows his team needs a win to guarantee a place in the round of 16 and the African champions are certainly capable of equaling Ecuador. If they can stay on the defensive, they will have many talented strikers who can punish and err from Ecuador.
