Is this the worst red card in World Cup history?

Your team is in a must-win World Cup game. You feel the pressure of being an African national playing in the first World Cup in Africa. But your team is leading 1-0 over Greece and you so this?

The player I am talking about is Nigeria’s Sani Kaita who was shown a straight red card for doing his best Eric Cantona Kung Fu impression. Kaita gets sent off, Greece get back into the game and eventually wear down the 10-man Nigerian team, beating them 2-1 and all but ending Nigeria’s World Cup dreams.
