World Cup

2010-07-17

Alberto Warnken Benavente took charge of a match in the 1st ever World Cup finals. In that match, Peru - Romania, a Romanian player broke a leg due to a bad foul. Warnken was the first referee to have sent a player off at a World Cup. The player was Galindo from Peru, probably the one who fouled so badly.
