The laws specify that any player who is cautioned twice in the same match must be sent off.

If a player receives a caution and is shown the yellow card for the second time in the same match, that player must be sent off and also shown the red card. However, there have been cases of referee error when the send-off did not occur as required, and so the player was permitted, incorrectly, to continue play.
