  1. Considering some of the other appointments, it's not logical to send a Second Group referee to a match, which still is relevant for qualification.
    Otherwise normal appointments, I think.

    DFB has already revealed
    POL-SVN: Siebert, Seidel, Achmüller, Stegemann

  2. KNVB revealed:
    Nijhuis, Balder, Goossens, Blom

  3. Kulbakov had bad luck, because Spain vs Romania will be like a friendly match. Spain is qualified with Sweden for Euro 2020, and Romania hopes are for Nations League playoff to be at this competition.

  4. Still no Skomina in Euro Qualifiers😪

    Last week he's in Hungary vs Uruguay

  5. OT: Along with UEFA Referees Convention Panel, UEFA established UEFA Referees Development Panel which consits of mostly ex-members of Referees Committee and some other names that were already considered as important observers (De Bleeckere, Riley) but also some new names that could became important observers in the very near future (Fröhlich, Garibian, Palmquist, Rizzoli, Velasco).
    Here is the full list:

    Referee Development Panel
    Panel Développement des arbitres
    Ausschuss für Schiedsrichterentwicklung
    Frank De Bleeckere (Belgium)
    David Elleray (England)
    Herbert Fandel (Germany)
    José Fontelas Gomes (Portugal)
    Lutz Fröhlich (Germany)
    Pascal Garibian (France)
    Bo Karlsson (Sweden)
    Nikolay Levnikov (Russia)
    Jenny Palmqvist (Sweden)
    Mike Riley (England)
    Nicola Rizzoli (Italy)
    Jaap Uilenberg (Netherlands)
    Kyros Vassaras (Greece)
    Carlos Velasco (Spain)

    1. Well, so this definitely explains why the former committee members have still their importance when they go to observe some referees. Just a switch on paper, but I would even dare to say that "main committee" still considers them very close.
      In addition, welcome to the "real new" names, like Rizzoli.

  6. A course for Women TOP assistant referees has been held by UEFA in recent days.
    Here a detailed report with all the participants in two pictures:

    1. From Croatia in the first group photo:
      AR Sanja Rodjak Karsic (third row, fourt from the left)
      Instructor Blazenka Logarusic (forst row, second from the right)

    2. 2 ARs from Serbia, Jasmina Zafirovic and Svetlana Bilic

  7. OT: LIGUE 1 - MATCHDAY 13 (22.11-24.11)

    Friday (22.11)
    PSG - Lille, 20:45 CET, referee: Clément Turpin (VAR: Benoît Bastien)

    Saturday (23.11)
    Lyon - Nice, 17:30 CET, referee: Amaury Delerue (VAR: Johan Hamel)
    Dijon - Rennes, 20:00 CET, referee: Jérôme Brisard (VAR: Jérôme Miguelgorry)
    Amiens - Strasbourg, 20:00 CET, referee: ? (VAR: ?)
    Metz - Reims, 20:00 CET, referee: Willy Delajod (VAR: Dominique Julien)

    Toulouse - Marseille, 21:00 CET, referee: François Letexier (VAR: Mikael Lesage)

  8. OT:
    U 21 Friendly match
    Budapest, New Puskás Aréna
    Rereferee: Fyodor Zammit (MLT)

  9. Tasos Sidiropoulos didn't get any appointment because his wife gave birth to his 2nd child these days

  10. Good luck to all officating referee teams!

  11. Do you know the referee for Brazil - South Korea friendly to be played tomorrow?

  12. 2 mistakes by AR2 within the first 3 minutes of IRL-DEN. After 15 seconds miles away from goal line to judge whether ball is in or out, this is a small mistake. However, 3 minutes into game, huge offside missed. Bad start for him

  13. Missed foul by Brych at 26' - was that inside the penalty area?

    As we can be used to, no good replays to assess...

  14. Missed foul and RC for DOGSO by Millot‘s team
    in Gibraltar-Switzerland. Defender clearly pulled the attacker back that could have gone through towards the goal. The situation occured after a long ball by the goalkeeper and therefore it was impossible for Millot to get a good view. However AR 2 must definitely have helped

  15. Tiago Bruno Lopes Martins with a relaxed evening... now he correctly booked a player. The next step will be preventing frustration by Armenian side.
