Friborg – Monday 25 July 2022 at 10:03 pm
At the start of the third division season 2022/23, Kimberly Ezequim of Freiburg II made history.
The 21-year-old set a new red record. In the opening match against Erzgebirge Aue, the defender applied the emergency brake after no less than 35 seconds, and immediate dismissal was inevitable.
The guests from the Ur Mountains also got a free kick from a dangerous position, which Marvin Stefaniak converted to make it 1-0. However, Breisgauers struggled to make it 1-1, albeit thanks to a goal from Aues Alexander Sorge in the 50th minute.
Ezekwem is only banned for one match
But Hazim is lucky in his misfortune. He should have been suspended from two games, but Aue’s goal was reduced to one. The German Federation justifies this with a “direct penalty”.
Ezekwem’s emergency brake broke the record for the fastest red card in Third Division history shared by two players so far.
Frank Lehmann originally set the record ten years ago in a Heidenheim jersey against Chemnitz FC. His contribution to the match was two minutes before he had to leave the field. Micic, who worked at SC Verl in the 2020/21 season, equaled Lehmann’s record against FC Ingolstadt.
