English international referee Anthony Taylor made a mistake during the match between Dynamo Kyiv of Ukraine and its guest Benfica (0-0) yesterday, Tuesday, in the Champions League.
Taylor showed the red card to the Ukrainian player Denis Garmash after he posted the yellow card in his face, thinking it was the second, but fortunately for the player, the English referee received a call from the video room “VAR”, to reverse his decision.
