Red Card in 0 to 5 Seconds

This past week in the Japan's J-League, the match between Nagoya Grampus and Shimizu S-Pulse ended in an unremarkable 1-1 draw. What was remarkable about that match was that it only took 5 seconds for Grampus defender Takahiro Masukawa to get a red card.

I note that there is some dispute over whether this video depicts said teams and Masukawa. Nonetheless, it does show a player earning a quick red card. I'll rework this post if I get more accurate information concerning this dispute.

It's not Masukawa who is sent off on the video. It's Tomo Sugawara from Tokyo Verdy and the match is from J.League 2 Season 2009 (8th day, 15 April 2009) between Tokyo Verdy and Sagan Tosu. Verdy eventually won it 2-0.
