Red card on Lenin stadium

Last weekend, my son played football in what may be the last remaining Lenin stadium in France (actually no, there is another one in Ivry) and managed to get a red card (if not a red flag) for complaining to the referee. How appropriate!.(The above plaque reads: “This stadium made in 1938 by the workmen township of Malakoff was named V.I. Lenin in honour of the founder of the Soviet Union. This plaque was set on Aug. 22, 1970, for his 100th birthday.”)
