Continuing our look back at some of the old Sporting Queries, which were so popular in the Sporting Post.
On April 24, 1993, ‘SDF’ asked:
How many players have been sent off while playing at Wembley?
SPQ answer – Very few. Lee Dixon’s recent FA Cup semi-final dismissal brought the number to just seven.
The other offenders have been:
August 1948, Boris Stankovic (Yugoslavia) v Sweden, Olympic tournament.
July 1966, Antonio Rattin (Argentina) v England, World Cup.
August 1974, Billy Bremner (Leeds United) and Kevin Keegan (Liverpool), FA Charity Shield.
March 1977, Gilbert Dreech (Luxembourg) v England, World Cup.
May 1985, Kevin Moran (Manchester United) v Everton, FA Cup Final.
April 1993, Lee Dixon (Arsenal) v Tottenham Hotspur, FA Cup semi-final.
