  1. The officials in Montenegro - Azerbaijan are part of Mateu Lahoz team's in Bosnia for tomorrow, they will officiate 48 hours later in a close country. Everything seems to have been planned in the best accurate way. If there aren't problems for them in having two games in a so short time... but this is typical by RFEF-CTA. Another federation would have appointed at least two different assistant referees.
    As for the rest, very good game for Palabıyık, committee has big expectations on him. Russian referees are back, after Karasev now Levnikov.
    About Scotland, Dallas Junior had retired from FIFA list but it seems as he has time for getting international appointments as fourth official, so I guess it was only a matter of "mental efforts".

    1. Interesting comment re young dallas, he is now receiving and accepting more appointments than he did when he was FIFA, maybe his business situation has changed and he will be back on FIFA as a referee next year. Also interesting the situation of Douglas Ross, the leader of the conservative party in Scotland, bouncing from games as assistant in europe with Collum, Madden and now Robertson. Domesticly Ibrox, Celtic Park, Kilmarnock and Easter Road, one can wonder who his main employer is, the government or the SFA ?

    2. Did Dallas jump before he was pushed?
      Strange that he resigns then receives more appointments than before. He resigned, he should be no where near any of these UEFA games.

      Regarding Ross, he has always been highly regarded, and is a decent official. Maybe getting in as many games as he can at present before the Scottish election campaign begins when he’ll likely be asked to be sidelined. (Excuse the pun!)

    3. Kind of similar situation with Markus Strombergsson, who continued to get international FO appointments after he retired from the FIFA List, so his availability was not an issue. Now he is often appointed as assessor.

    4. Forgot to mention, Ross also appointed to England v Wales friendly at Wembley, other assistants must be very unhappy, Maxwell and Doncaster hoping for knighthoods

    5. Hello viewers around the Globe, I was despondent because i had a very small penis, about 2.5 inches soft and 4 inches hard not nice enough to satisfy a woman, i have been in so many relationship, but cut off because of my situation, i have used so many product which doctors for me, but none could offer me the help i searched for. i saw some few comments on the INTERNET about this specialist called Dr,OLU and decided to contact him on his email: so I decided to give his herbal product a try. i emailed him and he got back to me, he gave me some comforting words with his herbal pills for Penis Enlargement, Within 3 week of it, i began to feel the enlargement was surprised when she said that she is satisfied with my sex and i have got a large penis. Am so happy, thanks to Dr OLU I also learn that Dr OLU also help with Breast Enlargement Hips and Bums Enlargement etc.. If you are in any situation with a little Penis, weak ejaculation, small breast_hips_bums do get to Dr OLU now for help on his email ( ) or add him on whatsapp line +2348140654426 

  2. UEFA exchanges Observers, Stefan Messner (AUT) is now in Montenegro, Pascal Garibian (FRA) in Luxembourg

  3. Expected level from de Burgos Bengoetxea in Montenegro-Azerbaijan. Five correct cautions and good relationship with players, game was a normal-difficulty one.

  4. Levnikov with a record: 12 YCs in Liechtenstein vs Gibraltar. Lovely game.

  5. Correct penalty to Ukraine by Grinfeld 77'

    1. And missed penalty to Germany in 90+2', I think.
      Otherwise a calm and satisfying performance, spotting and punishing most infringements in a fair match. The German commentator actually praised him a lot for his "pleasant" style.

  6. Spain - Switzerland
    Min. 14: were the Spanish players outside the opposing penalty area at the taking of the goal kick that led to the goal?
    Min. 81: referee indicates throw-in for Spain, but Switzerland takes it and play continues, in spite of furious Spanish bench...

    1. 14': Touching the line and leaning over it, but that should be acceptable

    2. Penalty area line belongs to the penalty area, so if they actually touched (with their feet) the line...

    3. Hategan ordered two goal kicks to be re-taken in Scotland-Israel for the same reason.

  7. Did Grinfeld allow four changes in UKRGER?

  8. Meanwhile in America's USL Championship (second-tier league).
    The referee is Elvis Osmanovic. VAR is not used by the league.

    The goal stood, Phoenix won 1-0, and Sacramento was eliminated from the playoffs. Good to see the cracking job that Howard Webb is doing with his "PRO" referee's. The 2020 USL Championship season has been one to forget about for its referee's.

    1. Another angle for your viewing pleasure.
