3. Bundesliga: Freiburg’s second pro career secures red record – football
At the start of the 2022/23 Third Division season, Kimberly Ezequim from Freiburg II made history.
The 21-year-old set a new red record. In the opener against Erzgebirge Aue, the defender applied the emergency brake after no less than 35 seconds, and the immediate dismissal was inevitable.
The Ur Mountains guests also got a free kick from a dangerous position, which Marvin Stefaniak converted to make it 1-0. However, the Breisgauers struggled to make it 1-1, but thanks to a goal from Aues Alexander Sorge in the 50th minute.
Ezekwem is only suspended for one game
But Hazim is lucky in his misfortune. He should have been suspended for two games, but Aue’s goal was reduced to one. The German Federation justifies this by a “direct sanction”.
Ezekwem’s emergency braking broke the record for 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 shirt against Chemnitz FC. His contribution to the game was two minutes before he had to leave the pitch. Micic, who worked at SC Verl in the 2020/21 season, equaled Lehmann’s record against FC Ingolstadt.
