Somewhere between 1996 and 2002 perhaps when I was a child, I distinctly remember seeing a bald goalkeeper getting a red card in either one of the World Cups or European championships. Sadly I can't remember the exact details other than the goalkeeper was bald, and outright agressive. Who would fit such a description?

I've checked every match from Euro 96, World Cup '98, Euro 2000, and World Cup 2002. I can only find one goalkeeper who was sent off at any of those tournaments: Belgian goalkeeper Filip De Wilde, who was sent off during a group match against Turkey at Euro 2000. He wasn't quite bald, but he certainly was aggressive (and prone to mistakes), if this footage of his Euro 2000 performance is anything to go by. I've timestamped it to start with the red-card incident.
