WATCH: CANWNT star St Georges sent off for double one-fingered salute towards match official in NWSL

Bianca St Georges Chicago Red Stars red card 2022
Canada star Bianca St Georges saw red in her latest NWSL outing for the Chicago Red Stars after giving a double one-fingered salute to an official.
  • Not happy with a throw-in decision
  • Swore at the fourth official
  • Chicago finished game with nine players

WHAT HAPPENED? The CANWNT full-back was sent off shortly before the hour mark in a forgettable outing for her domestic employers that delivered a 3-0 defeat in Oregon. St Georges disagreed with a thrown-in decision that went against her early in the second half, leading to her losing her cool as a sweary response was offered to the fourth official operating on her side of the field.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: St Georges, who has won three senior caps for her country, will now be forced to served a ban – forcing her out of a meeting with Angel City in the final round of regular season fixtures in the 2022 NWSL campaign.

WHAT NEXT FOR ST GEORGES? The Chicago Red Stars need a positive result from their last game to stand any chance of making the play-offs, with an untimely tumble into seventh spot coming on the back of a defeat to Portland that saw them finish with only nine players on the field – with Zoe Morse also being dismissed in stoppage-time.
