  1. An interesting match today Boyko, at MME, famous for his boss PIERLUIGI COLLINA, wich it promoted.

  2. Very good first half by Boiko. There was 1 penalty appeal by England (min. 30) but I am not totally convinced. Excellent decision by Gudermanis to disallow an England goal (tough situation but greatly spotted).

  3. I agree. First time that I really had a chance to watch him. It hasn't been a challenging match so far but he has still impressed me.

  4. But this penalty was to my mind exaggerated. Don't know whether UEFA will call it a mistake.

    2. Very small holding and embracing of the opponent..but surely not enough for a penalty.

    3. I agree. I didn't think it was a penalty at the time. By the way we are getting battered by the Norwegians.

    4. For me it is justified. The attacker is going for a header. I believe Sajn will back the referee.

    5. That's why I did not want to call it a mistake. You CAN give such penalties, if there is consistency and if the instructions allow it. But if he whistles this penalty, we must see more than one penalty in this match..

  5. Very good performance apart from the penalty about which we can discuss a lot.

    1. Even we can call the penalty exaggerated it was most likely advised by AAR2. So this can't spoil the impression I received from him.

  6. I concur. Very much liked Boiko's performance.
