Football: Referee yellow cards Kaka then takes selfie with Brazil legend

A referee made an unusual intervention during a star-studded charity football match when she yellow carded a player so she could get a selfie with them.

Brazilian great Kaka was the victim in the match between a Brazil side featuring World Cup winners from the 1994 and 2002 squads and an Israeli veterans XI.

In the second half, Kaka was dribbling down the field when referee Lilach Asulin blew her whistle and stopped the game for a moment, giving the 37-year-old a yellow card. 

Kaka was confused why he'd been booked, but as he asked the referee, she pulled out her phone and asked for a selfie and the Brazilian was more than happy to oblige. 

Some of Brazil's players thought the gesture was funny in a match that was being played to promote peace. 

Among the other legends taking part in the game were Ronaldinho, Roberto Carlos, Rivaldo, Cafu and Bebeto.

Kaka was among the goalscorers as Brazil won the match 4-2, which was played in front of 28,000 fans in Haifa, northern Israel.

He's one of only eight players to have won the World Cup, Champions League and Ballon d'Or.
