Carlos '5 cards' Batres

2010-09-03

Olympic Tournament, Gold Cup, Confederations Cup, Champions Cup and World Cup veteran Carlos Batres has been around internationally since 1996. He retired in 2010 after the final of The North American SuperLiga, his last match

Club World Cup
Batres lead the final of the Club World Cup 2006 between Sport Club Internacional (from Brazil) and Barcelona in Yokohama, Japan.

WC 2010
Carlos Alberto Batres González refereed two matches for the 2002 World Cup in Korea/Japan. He was not selected in 2006 (his team failed the fitness test), but is once again back on FIFA's top list for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. It will definitely be his last due to FIFA's retiring age policy.

The list is long, have a look. Note all the finals he took charge of

cards
we have over 2500 referees in our database and not many have such a staggering high average of 5 cards per match as Batres. In an international match with Batres in charge a team has an almost 70% chance of losing a player (well, divided in half of course, since there are two teams...).
