An Unacceptable Resumption in Craiova - A week in refereeing that points to a darker future (Law 5 View, 1/3)

Though the 2019/20 season is in its infancy, we have certainly enjoyed an interesting week of European football; also, a rather controversial one too - regarding executive match calls, final appointments, and evaluation of crucial decisions.

In this series of Law 5 View posts we want to retrospect the week just gone in more than an atomistic way, and offer our take on the direction that elite refereeing is heading is recent times - in our opinion, towards a darker future.

First, we focus on the events of the Universitatea Craiova - Budapest Honvéd game on Thursday.

UEFA Under-21 EURO Review

UEFA's most prestigious youth competition took place this summer in Italy and San Marino, giving some of Europe's most talented young players a chance to shine and a further step in their careers.

This could easily be analogised to each of the nine referee trios and seven VAR duos whom UEFA appointed to officiate the twenty-one matches taking place over the place of a hectical fortnight in sometimes searing hot conditions.

As we can be used to in this competition since many editions, besides one or the other exception, the competition was well refereed by some of Europe's most promising future Elite referees.

In cooperation with our user Mhmd S. AlKhalifi we would like to present a detailed analysis of the refereeing at Under-21 EURO 2019.
