YELLOW cards are a major part of any tournament, but rarely do they hold as much significance as in the World Cup.
All countries involved will be gearing up for their opening games in Qatar, which is now just around the corner.
Although many players will be wary of picking up suspensions.
And FIFA have specific rules regarding bookings, and when they are reset at the tournament.
When do yellow cards reset at the World Cup?
Unlike in other years, players will not miss the World Cup final if they have been booked previously.
However, if a player were to pick up a red card, they would still be suspended.

However, the rules haven't always been this way. Paul Gascoigne famously broke down in tears after picking up a yellow card against West Germany during Italia 90' World Cup, preventing him from playing in the final.
As it was, England went on to lose on penalties, but no player in Qatar will have to go through what 'Gazza' did that day.
