Did Maradona get a red card during the World Cup 90′?

Did Maradona get a red card during the World Cup 90′?

No, he did not.

In the game against England, Maradona was given a yellow card for unsporting behavior. He then approached the referee and tried to convince him that he should have been shown a red card instead.

Maradona had been kicked in the face by an English player before this incident and he was also bleeding from his mouth following an earlier clash with another England player. In addition, there were suspicions that he was carrying a knife, which was later confirmed when police found one in his sock during a search after Argentina’s 2-1 victory over Cameroon in 1990.
