However, in a rather awkward moment, Michael Oliver’s attention was called on by Portugal player, Vitinha who proceeded to show the Englishman a yellow. Role reversal it would seem as it drew a few laughs from the TV commentary team.

The reality though was that the English referee hot on heels to penalize Portugal for a foul on France’s captain, Kylian Mbappe after a corner was taken in France’s penalty area, had lost his yellow card. In humorous style, Vitinha picked it up from the ground and showed it to the premier league referee.

The moment wasn’t a serious one however but a light-hearted moment that released some tension from the play.

In the moment, both sides still held on to a 0-0 scoreline despite impressive play and goal attempts to break the tie.
