Is there any goal keeper who received red card in FIFA World cup?

I heard that the referee can give red card even for goal-keepers in football.

The first Keeper sent off in a WC match was the Italian keeper Gianluca Pagliuca. He was sent off for handling a ball outside the box. The card was a straight red.

The other is Itumeleng Khune, a South African keeper who was sent off during a match with Uruguay during the 2010 cup. He was sent off for tripping a striker in the box.
