  3. As I haven't had the opportunity to watch any of these games, how's Michael Oliver doing?

  4. Watched Strombergsson just now and there are 3 crucial decisions.

    1) Possible DOGSO situation at min. 19' when a Turkish defender (no. 5) hold his opponent about 10m in front of the center line and having a direction to the Turkish goal. Strombergsson issued only yellow (since he thought that a second defender could have stopped the attacker) and I tend to agree with him but I have seen other referees issuing red (Hategan, Gil).

    2) Disallowed goal for Turkey for Offside (AR1). Up to this moment I can't understand which player the assistant flagged for offside.

    3) Penalty for Turkey at min. 87. Completely correct since the GK throws himself at the attacker in the air without touching the ball.

    1. According to uefa.com the Turkish player in offside was İbrahim Yılmaz

    2. Yes, but it was a weird situation Chefren and the player that scored seemed too onside.

      It was an error by the assistant, that is clear from the replays. A crucial mistake from Hashimov, unfortunately.

    5. I have watched the situations.
      Here the possible DOGSO:

      You are right Edward, it might have been a RC. Anyway, I can still understand the choice to give YC because the distance from the goal is really remarkable and the other defender you have mentioned seems still to have a last chance to reach the ball. It isn't a clear DOGSO and so the referee has his discretion.

      Goal disallowed for offside: difficult stuation to evaluate for the assistant I think, because the keeper was out and there was a French defeder out of the pitch.

      Probably it's a mistake, but an interesting case to analyze. The player out of the pitch must be considered on the line?

      And finally the third situation: correct penalty for me. Ok decision. The keeper is absolutely late in his attempt, clear foul.

  5. I have written a report for Michael Oliver and crew using the new document (we have internally switched to UEFA report structure). As far as I have managed to upload it, I post it here as a comment. He was overall doing quite well.

    Bosnian media said that Alečković was sent home from tournament because he sent sexual massages to players. If committee really sent him home for this, I think we won't see him ever again in UEFA's matches.

    2. I really can't believe that, I hope there were different reasons for sending home him. It would be unacceptable from a FIFA referee, but at the end maybe I'm too naive, FIFA referees are men as we are.
      Anyway, waiting for more detailed news, let's see if he has really been sent home, first of all.
