Sending-Off Offences

From FIFA Laws of the game (I know, they are not always enforced…)

Sending-Off Offences

A player is sent off and shown the red card if he commits any of the following seven offences:

1. is guilty of serious foul play;

2. is guilty of violent conduct;

3. spits at an opponent or any other person;

4. denies the opposing team a goal or an obvious goalscoring opportunity by deliberately handling the ball (this does not apply to a goalkeeper within his own penalty area);

The ball is played towards goal by the attacking team and a defender jumps and handles it as the attacking player moves towards the ball. The defender is sent off for denying the opposing team an obvious goalscoring opportunity.
