Best Answer

A red card in soccer (football) means the player or players who receive it will be 'sent off' the pitch and will receive a temporary ban from playing football, on average 1 - 3 games depending on the soccer/football league's rules. The player can not be replaced for the remainder of the game.

To receive a red card in soccer you either have to get two yellow cards, or a straight red depending on the incident. A scenario for a instant red card: If a player is 1-on-1 with a goalkeeper and suddenly a defender does a poor tackle on the player that is a red card (depending on the referee.)
