Italy captain Sara Gama somehow escaped a red card after a high challenge during Italy’s Women’s European Championship game against France.

Italy were 5-0 down against France at the time, so the Italian captain was understandably frustrated at her team’s performance.

Gama initially received a red-card for her challenge, but the referee decided to overturn the decision after a VAR review.

Gama was nowhere near the ball and extremely high, so it was a bit of a surprise to see the referee change her mind.
