  1. Semifinals have been assigned to Hunter and Hansen.
    Probably Makkelie and Valeri will fight for the final appointment.
    It's anyway a pity that one of the two will remain without a further appointment.

  2. Yes, that is always crap. Makkelie without a yellow card in both matches. I have only seen Valeri, in the POR-ESP match and I was not convinced at all by the late penalty whistle. Hunter had problems in SRB-FRA, hence I am surprised that he has received this clash.

    My guesses for the assistant referees remaining at the tournament are: Listkiewicz, de Neve, Lebedev and Gudmundsson. Zhuk could replace Lebedev.

    1. In my opinion, Hunter was excellent in SRB-FRA. Difficult match and consistent strict applying LoTG. It's good when we talk about young competitions. I don't know where did you see Hunter's problems in that match?

      Delete
    2. No tactical approach, no authority, but of course good decisions, that was my entire impression.

      Delete
    3. Hunter is still learning. He is born 1979 and this is his first big tournament. So lack of authority could be excused because of this. Makkelie will probably take the final.

      Delete
    4. Maybe, but I think like Edward - young referee, the big talent I think and what authority can he have if UEFA's instructions are obvious for such tournaments: stricter punishing, less conversation. Of course, I think talks with players can be helpful but referee must have a skill in this field. Not everyone has that. I thought that Hunter will referee the final but semi is good too.

      Delete
    5. As always, the final seems to be reserved for a referee joining a huge federation, Makkelie or Valeri. But we have to wait for the fourth's of both semis, they as always indicate the final ref.

    6. I am curious did Alain Bieri showed good performances. His second match with two red cards must have been very intense. I have a bad luck with Alain Bieri. Only one Qatari League match that I haven't recorded is a match with Bieri, now two matches at UEFA U19 with him wasn't televised ;) I saw Makkelie many times and he seems to be great referee in the future. Really big talent. I don't like Valeri style, but for sure he's very good too.

    7. valeri is already at home guys!The other candidate except Makkelie is Bieri...

      Delete
    8. You have good infos :) It would be OK - Valeri and Direktorenko made big mistakes in his matches, I didn't see Makkelie and Bieri in this tournament. There is interview with Makkelie and Valeri at UEFA site, so maybe they both are at home and Bieri for the final? Who knows...

      Delete
    9. Can yu explain at least one of the big mistakes made by Valeri?
      I haven't watched the matches, thanks.

      Delete
    10. As I have mentioned, I only saw his first match (POR-ESP). He awarded a penalty in 90+1 to Portugal who then equalized (3-3). Replays were a bit too late, but actually, it was no real foul. The striker made it very skillfully and more or less ran into the defender's legs, that was my impression of this scene. Yun Hyeon, have you seen CRO-SRB?
      Makkelie - one should not be too early - but along with Gözübüyük he seems to be the future of Dutch refereeing. Blom and Nijhuis obviously have not managed it, so now perhaps it is their time. And then, there are referees like Jochem Kamphuis or Jeroen Sanders who seem to be very promising, only aged 26/27 and having experienced many internationals as fourths, but let's wait.

      Delete
    11. Not, I only said about Direktorenko in Greece - Spain and Valeri in Spain - Portugal. In those matches, referees weren't very good.

      Yes, in Netherlands are many talent-referees like you mentioned. I hope Nijhuis will reach something big in his career, he is really good.

      Niclas, I wrote a report about Women's U19 semifinal yesterday. Carlos is in the trip, so can I send it to you?

      Delete
    12. Yes of course, you can.
      Indeed a very good year for French refereeing, although one may not forget what Duhamel had to cope with in the early year.

  7. What a mistake by Hansen. I am stunned.
    The clearest and fairest tackle a goalkeeper can make against the approaching striker, solely touching the ball, and Hansen awards a penalty and gives red to the goalie. Inacceptable decision, the first yellow a few minutes before was wrong as well.
    I am sure AR1 Lebedev knows that it was no penalty. His reaction could indicate that and Hansen seemed to be a bit muddled after having talked to him as well.
    After all, he can be very happy that until now, the penalty has no consequence as the new Greek goalie kept it.

    1. Completely wrong penalty. The only consequence the penalty has is that the Greek keeper Kapino loses the final (if Greece goes through).

      Delete
    2. Yes, of course. For such situations, it is good that UEFA has softened the sanctity of decisions based on facts in the Twente-Schalke case. The Greek goalkeeper should not be banned in compliance with common sense, in compliance with those statutes etc. he will miss it of course.
      My impressions:
      A performance that is hard to evaluate, too many yellows for side actions, strange decisions (yellows with much delay), missed a clear 2nd YC to Stafylidis (118') for a hard foul from behind. Correct NO penalty in 119', correct yellow for the slip into the Greek player's face. Strange gestures, no real verbal warnings except a situation prior to a first half corner kick. Fitness and stamina good, maverick manner of sprinting sometimes. He found no answer to the rising tension after the penalty decision, no pro-active behaviour to encounter Greek dives, and yes, after 45', there were too many of them..according to our new scale, which you will all receive (or it is made public here as well..), it could be "one clear and important mistake, otherwise satisfactory with areas for improvement" or even "disappointing with at least one clear and important mistake", depends on the respective observer's assessment..

    3. And concerning both assistant referees, Listkiewicz was good, Lebedev regular with this penalty..Listkiewicz could be appointed for the final, but if de Neve and Kolev do well, I will prefer them.

      Delete
  8. Final appointment: Makkelie as guessed, probably with Bieri as fourth.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Full appointment

    (knvb.nl)

    Makkelie (NED)
    de Neve (BEL) - Lebedev (RUS)
    Bieri (SUI)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I do not understand that. An assistant referee who has a free area of vicinity on the penalty kick decision made by Hansen joins the final, strange. De Neve was very much expected, although I thought of Hunter as the final fourth. Thanks for the appt.
