Very important to note that Kotoko and Aduana have done nothing in breach of football laws.
They played with 10 men each for 90 minutes.
Whether it was due to superstition or not can be discussed later. They broke no laws.
Bizarre, yes. Illegal? No.

Many of the fans disagree with you, coach! Respectfully, they disagree with you. I also do. You should be able to explain exactly what led to the 10-man decision. pic.twitter.com/pp0I6SwYQa
