The great Ray Richards, one of the pioneers of Australian football, was sent off in the Socceroos' final group stage match against Chile at the 1974 FIFA World Cup. He was shown a yellow card on 36 minutes then again at the 80-minute mark. However, Iranian referee Jafar Namdar, forgot to send him off.


Just three minutes later, Richards would be booked yet again. This time, receiving his marching orders. Way before English referee Graham Poll's calamity during the 2006 World Cup (Australia v Croatia), Richards suffered the same fate as Josip Simunic. At least Poll had a reasonable excuse, claiming Simunic's Australian accent caused him to write the number three in the wrong column of his notebook.
