    1. This clearly means Shukralla will have a game on Thursday!

    2. Poor management, they should have known that!

      Delete
    3. At it could possibly mean that the tournament is over for Irmatov. Well at least no more Center Referee designations. The 2014 Nishimura treatment. Only 4th Official assignments.

    4. Very bad appointment for Shukralla to get Tunisia v Panama! He is probably going to go home too!

      Delete
    5. I am indeed surprised to see Shukralla's name assigned to this particular match. Two eliminated teams but both will definitely go at each other hard to try to earn their first 3 points.

    6. They could easily give that game to Conger!

      Delete
    7. Conger had his game. I'd of given it to Sato or Bascunan. Two referee's who traveled to Russia with two Assistant Referee's. Or maybe even Hauata as a gesture of good will and thank you from the Referee Committee for his career.

    3. Skomina and Shukralla are the other 2 appointed referees... No 2nd game yet for Brych, Aguilar and Gassama!

      Delete
    4. Soham is always a step forward!

    6. I swear he has some contact with Alberto the Fifa media director :D

      Delete
    7. Skomina in England v Belgium and Shukralla in Panama v Tunisia... You heard it here first ;)

      Delete
    8. Dead game for Sikazwe? Poland is out and is a mess at the moment. Only Japan has something to play for. However they are one of the more disciplined and fair teams in the tournament.

      Delete
    9. Soham, you were right, except for the time it was 8 p.m. CET 👍. You are really very well informed 👏

      Delete
    10. Thank you :D 8 p.m. was actually the time the appointments were revealed to the referees ;)

  4. Shukralla Panama - Tunisia... not a referee convincing FIFA... a pity. He had shown some good skills.

    1. Maybe FIFA doesn't rate him very highly... This should've been Conger's 2nd game IMO!

      Delete
    2. I feel very sorry for him. I saw his first match and I liked his performance very much. Also he looks like he's happy every time he enters the pitch, always smiling ;)

      Delete
    3. Maybe the management before Senegal's 2nd goal was assessed as wrong by the Committee?

  6. IMO Gassama and Brych for sure will get a 1/8 final. Aguilar may be.

    ReplyDelete
  7. So reserve referees were: Bascuñán, Sato, Hauata, Pitti, Abid Charef, Thessema and Montero.

    1. Complete waste of two trio's by the Referee Committee. Sato and Bascunan. Why brings full trio for these referee's, if they're not going to step foot on the pitch?

      Delete
    2. Bascunan and Sato did not really represent two "trios": Bascunan was assisted by Schiemann in all his matches whereas Astroza served solely as VAR. Sato was assisted by Sagara in all his matches whereas Yamauchi always assisted Montero.

      Delete
    3. I understand that. But they are still a trio from the same country. Just because they didn't get to work together it doesn't mean that they weren't selected as a trio. I'd much preferred to see these trios work together than "patched" together trios (Maruffo).

  8. Now it‘s Jair Marrufo who will be the 4th official in SRB-BRA. I don‘t know what is going on here...

  9. This must be a blog record: 32 comments but, at halftime, none about the performance! I'll start, then: good performance by Mateu Lahoz in a very easy game without any major incident. Just one reckless use of arms correctly refereed with a YC.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Disagree. He never used the arms as a tool or weapon. The Iceland player went with his face into his arm and pushed him and injured himself.

      Delete
    2. Even though Iceland has a lot to play for, Croatia doesn't and their starting 11 shows this. However it's still "Iceland". So as some here in the USA would say, "ain't nobody got time for that". Lol

      And Messi's Argentina is playing a must win match. So you know where the World's eyeballs are glued to.

  10. Absolutely correct PK assigned by Mateu Lahoz.

  11. A bit soft but correct hand-PK for ICE. Scored.
