    3. No, nothing new ;-) Brych has already been selected four times while it's the seventh award for Steinhaus.

  4. I'm sorry, but I was inclined to vote as for me the best had been Mr. Ricci's performance in Russia vs Croatia.

  5. Sandro Ricci and Malang Diedhiou have both announced their retirements from international refereeing... Two beautiful careers ending on a high with accomplishment of getting appointed to the World Cup Knockout stage... We will miss them both, adieu and all the best for the future!

    An Interview with Brych's AR.

    He told there was no communication with the VAR and stats, that the decision was a 50/50 decision.

    1. Well, this is unfair for Brych. His performance was very good with one controversial, not black or white situation. Brych's nomination for this game was unlucky, his sending home by FIFA was terrible and unfair decision.

    Viktor Kassai has started the season with a hot derby. With 2 straight red card. First 1:57 second 3:45. He had a very good performance today IMO, but what do you think the second situation ?

    1. Situation 1: 100% SFP, RC is fully correct here. Clearly endangering the safety of the opponent.

      Situation 2: Excellent decision! Watching it live, I was under the impression that it was a genuine attempt to play the ball (=YC), but replays clearly show that the arms were on the opponent's shoulder pushing him down. Therefore RC for DOGSO is fully correct! Well done, Mr. Kassai!
