Yes. It is possible for a player who has already been cautioned to be directly sent off if the second offense merited a send off by itself. In this case, the match report would reflect one caution and one send off, instead of two cautions and one send off.

According to the Laws of the Game, no. A player receiving his second caution of the match will be shown the yellow card, immediately followed by the red card. Some leagues, including many high school and other youth leagues, have a so-called "soft red" card, in which the referee does hold up the red and yellow cards at the same time with the same hand. A "soft red" means that the player is sent off, but may be substituted (at the cost of one of the team's allowed substitutions for the game). It is important to note that "soft red" cards do not exist in any sort of professional soccer.

Can you call fouls in rugby?

It is expected the referee and/or assistant referees will see foul play. Players in the game are reminded that coercing a referee or official to award penalties or yellow cards can in itself bring a penalty award against that player. The game is unlike soccer where players will look for foul as it is deemed "Ungentlemanly conduct"

There is no expectation of any official language for international matches.

The Laws of the Game, the document that governs soccer worldwide, uses English as its official language, but that does not mean that it's the official language of soccer or of any particular match.
