U20 Quarterfinals Referee Appointments

FIFA has chosen the next four referees who will be in charge of the quarterfinals of U20 World Cup 2011 held in Colombia. Although I had them in "Nuestras Designaciones" (in Carlos' blog) as well, they are a bit problematic as FIFA did not seem to have thought of the last four matches...I am excited how they will manage that.
These are the appointments:

M45, 13/08/2011, 20:00, Bogotá
Mexico vs Colombia
The Guatemalan trio (fr.l.: G.Lopez, W.Lopez, H.Leal)
Referee Cuneyt CAKIR (TUR)
Assistant Referee 1 Bahattin DURAN (TUR)
Assistant Referee 2 Tarik ONGUN (TUR)
4th Official Markus STRÖMBERGSSON (SWE)
Reporter Nacho PASCUAL (ESP)

M46, 13/08/2011, 17:00, Cartagena
Portugal vs Argentina
Referee Peter O'LEARY (NZL)
Assistant Referee 1 Ravinesh KUMAR (FIJ)
Assistant Referee 2 Jackson NAMO (SOL)
4th Official KIM Dong Jin (KOR)
Reporter Rubén LOPEZ (ESP)

M47, 14/08/2011, 18:00, Pereira
Brazil vs Spain
Referee Walter LOPEZ (GUA)
Assistant Referee 1 Hermenerito LEAL (GUA)
Assistant Referee 2 Gerson LOPEZ (GUA)
4th Official Mark GEIGER (USA)
Reporter Dino (Croref) (CRO)

M48, 14/08/2011, 15:00, Cali
Nigeria vs France
Referee Dario UBRIACO (URU)
Assistant Referee 1 Carlos PASTORINO (URU)
Assistant Referee 2 William CASAVIEJA (URU)
4th Official Wilson SENEME (BRA)
Reporter Cagatay IRIS (TUR)


M49, 17/08/2011, 20:00, Pereira
W47-W45 (BRA/ESP vs COL/MEX)
Referee TBD

M50, 17/08/2011, 17:00, Medellin
W48-W46 (NGA/FRA vs POR-ARG)
Referee TBD
Reporter Maicon DE OLIVEIRA (BRA)

3rd place: TBD
Final: everyone can send me his marks to make an average, Carlos will probably make the WR report as he will probably be in Bogotá.


  1. I really can not understand why FIFA insists too much not to assign a european ref. to a match involving a european team. I thought that we will see Schörgenhofer and Collum in 2nd stage. That seems they will go home. The last four appoitment will be too much confusing. We may see a quarter final ref. to handle the final.

    By the way, our assignments to matches also show the performance of ours in this tournament :D, then you have to decide upon the 3rd place match which will be hard :D.

  2. :D no, there is no real relation.
    I will make no qf as I will be arriving in the Netherlands tomorrow, there will not be much time for watching TV.
    But an SF is ok. I think you will get the 3rd place match, because you watched the most matches behind Carlos, Maicon and me.
    But it would be great to get all your marks for 3rd place and final, then I will make an average mark. Of course, only two main reports can be published in WR, I think it is your turn, Cagatay, and Carlos turn.

  3. It is, actually, almost usual to have a referee from the quarter-finals selected for the final.
