Video referee used for the first time….

Ajax’s Dutch Cup 5-0 victory over Willem II saw the first player sent off by a video referee. Official Danny Makkelie took charge of Wednesday’s game with Pol van Boekel assisting from a van outside. With Ajax 2-0 up, Willem’s Anouar Kali was shown a yellow card by Makkelie for a challenge on Lasse Schone. However, upon watching the incident back, Van Boekel indicated Kali should be shown a red. The referee corrected his initial decision and Ajax made the man advantage count, going on to add a further three goals.
