    2. What's the point of Dallas observing Gil since he observed him a few months back at EL?

      Delete
  4. Good question. I guess observers at final tournaments are assigned independently from previous matches. Or they are planning to promote Gil to ED and Dallas as vice officer will get another piece of certainty? No idea..

  6. The corner prior to the penalty assigned to Isral seems to be wrong. The penalty decision can be accepted.
    Some interesting stuff to analyze in this first minutes of the opener match...

  7. DOGSO?
    Mmmhh how many controversial decision, there...

    ReplyDelete
  8. Busy 45 minutes for Pawel Gil and Co.

  9. Judgment of the sending-off will be in my report:
    - Correct red card for dogso
    - Excellent onside decision by AR1 Toth
    - Good to caution the ISR player for demanding a RC to the opponent.

    For me a phantom penalty. I do not detect a contact that is enough for a foul.

    1. I agree. I'm just not convinced it's a penalty. The Israeli player very theatrically and dramatically falls to the floor.

      Delete
    2. I also agree about the penalty.
      In the red card situation, both colours are possible, I think. Possibly the other defender could stop the attack, but this needs interpretation from the referee, who can decide in both ways.

  11. What do you think about the tackle by the Israeli player on his Norwegian counterpart in minute 46'? For me straight red.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Unfortunately I missed this situation because I just returned in 47th minute. I have recorded the match though and will re-watch the scenes and let you know then.
    Regarding the red card: I think if you stop at the moment where the foul happened, you will see that the other defender was 5 metres farer away from the goalline. Hard but for me nearly the only correct decision.

  13. I have to be honest, my first impressions were wrong.
    The penalty whistled is a mistake, but difficult to detect. The important thing to underline is also that the previous corner given to Israel was wrong.
    The red for DOGSO is acceptable but here I share the opinion of Philipp, the other defender seemed not totally out from the action.
    I also missed the possible red card in 46', don't know.

  14. Robinson's trailing foot does seem to catch Florenzi...

    1. for me penalty, and missed at least a YC 4 minutes later, 43' foul by Shelvey, reckless

      Delete
    2. In most of the moments of the match I did not have the feeling that Gautier was mentally alert. Furthermore I am stunned that Munukka did nothing. Now they already deploy twelve eyes and such scenes are still missed :S

  15. Roland Brandner excellent cooperation, he reported that it was free kick and not penalty, very difficult, brave and crucial call.

  16. Penalty...then not a penalty

    ReplyDelete
  17. Overall a weak performance. He should consult his teammates first before taking decisions on his own. Poor teamwork. Both assistants ok, but also apart from the major calls I think Gautier was pretty fussy.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The teams played quite tough :)

    I'm not too sure about the penalty appeal, my first impression was that the defender made a fair attempt for the ball, however I will look at the replays again tomorrow.

    Can only agree that Shelvey should have been booked and great call to make it a freekick instead of a penalty, the first contact was well outside the box.

    Otherwise good calls from the assistants, will look at some more situations tomorrow and then conclude a report.

    1. Pay attention to Gautier gestures in all the situations, he was going to take different decisions.

      Delete
  19. Yes, key situations to be reviewed definitely are the penalty appeal in 40', the disallowed goal by Munukka at the start of half 2 and the penalty/free kick controversy.
    A not so satisfying first day, but a good football level I must say. Challenging matches for the officials.

    It seems to me that after the contact there is also a handball by English defender. Am I wrong?

    1. Do you see a handball? Because I don't and even so you think it is deliberate to warrant a penalty?

      Delete
    2. Clear penalty, but I must also highlight that the Italian forward made the impression to look for this contact. Never a handball penalty, even if there was a touch with the hand, no intention.

      Delete
    3. For me no-penalty. Italian forward was looking for a contact and fell extremely easy. Look at his feet to understand that.

      Delete
    4. I see the point, but nonetheless I think he totally hit hit his opponent. Well yesterday evening I was actually sure it would be a penalty..but I withdraw the statement "clear penalty"..

      Report for Gil will follow tomorrow in the morning. Mark will be 7.9.

    5. Yes, the handball, even though happened, was surely not intentional.

      Jug first half: in a fair match, the only YC given might have been a straight red, very dangerous and reckless tackle, the decision was anyway borderline, YC is still ok, Russian player was lucky. Spain is playing like Barça: ball possession, but nothing more. Not a nice game to watch.

  21. Niclas, did you get a chance to re-watch the incident in the 46th minute? If so, what's your thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Today I had not the time to rewatch the incident. Tomorrow in the morning I am going to see the performance again with special focus on this situation :)
