Watch: Woman Referee Shows Yellow Card To Brazil Legend Kaka, Then Takes Selfie Mid-Match
Israeli referee Lilach Asulin booked Brazil football legend Ricardo Kaka for no clear reason and then took a selfie with him in an exhibition match.
Brazil legend Kaka retired from professional football in 2017 but over the years his fan base still remains intact. In an exhibition match between Brazil and Israel, referee Lilach Asulin of Israel blew the whistle to stop Kaka in his stride and waved a yellow card at him for no clear reason. Shockingly, she went on to whip out a phone from her right pocket and then took a selfie with him -- all this while the game was still on. After the incident, Kaka's teammates were all smiles and later shook hands with the Israeli referee. Meanwhile, the Real Madrid and AC Milan legend look bewildered when he was stopped in his tracks by the referee but then couldn't stop smiling when she took her phone out.
