Referee sends off wrong twin in Italy

An Italian amateur football match will be replayed after the referee sent off the wrong twin, in a bizarre case of mistaken identity.

Michele Rossi, who plays for SSD Castello in the ninth tier of Italian football, was sent off for a challenge that his brother Matteo committed in a league clash with GS Alviano.

After scoring a goal to put his side 2-1 ahead, Matteo Rossi sparked a pitch row with a nasty foul which led to referee Mr Cirillo from Terni mistakenly brandishing a red card for his brother in the chaotic aftermath.

"The referee, purely due to error, in the 27th minute of the second half sent off SSD Castello's No.7, Michele Rossi, instead of their No.9, Matteo Rossi," wrote Marco Brusco, the sporting judge of the Umbria regional league organisation.

"It was an error that had an undoubted impact on the game and as such the match should be replayed," added Brusco.

The incident comes less than a fortnight after Andre Marriner inexplicably sent off Kieran Gibbs when Arsenal teammate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain handled the ball on the goalline in their 6-0 defeat to Chelsea.
