  1. Overall Nishimura did really well and kept the potentially difficult match between Jordan and Uzbekistan under control. Foul detection was ok, in some moments he appeared too lenient and could have issued some cards earlier/more.
    The 1:0 was probably tight onside, there were no good replays to check it (AR2).

    1. I'm almost sure that Williams will face a more difficult match in the second leg.

    Boiko 8.6 in EST-NED 2-2 game

    did everything correctly!

    Greetings from Estonia

    1. I agree the penalty was correct.
      Brave decsion at the end of the match.


    Red card? I don't see any cntact in this situation, to be honest.

  4. Red card issued by Bennett (Senegal - Uganda):

    Furthermore, the observer for Badara Diatta (South Africa - Botswana): Lim Kee Chong (Mauritius)

    This means of course that FIFA pays attention in observing preselected referees also in this qualifying matches...

  5. Absolutely correct decision.

  6. Nigeria - Malawi
    Hamada Nampiandraza

    51' penalty in favor of Nigeria
    53' straight red card
    The red card can be for DOGSO or SFP.
    In my opinion, in this situation both reasons are suitable :D
    Both situations are at the beginning of the video, which is a resume of second half.

  7. In my opinion the penalty is wrong (dive). But the sending-off is 100% clear, more sfp than dogso for me.

  8. I have watched the first half of Cameroon - Libya (crucial game for the qualifications) and I must admit that Doue showed overall a top class performance.

  9. Ignoring many phantom fouls, excessively using the whistle, lacks of authority and match control (44'), it was really ok with regard to the major calls. But the players did not totally respect his decisions.

    Any comments regarding Brych in Croatia - Serbia and Makkelie in Northern Ireland - Portugal?


    2. I am preparing the report on Brych at the moment. Patience.

    Can i know the refrees for Ghana- Egypt match in 15th September?

  12. Sorry, they will be only revealed by CAF in the course of this week.
    My personal bet is Daniel Bennett (RSA) or Néant Alioum (CMR) though.

  13. Anonymous25/9/13 14:29

    I think FIFA names them not CAF
    Why do you suspect these two refrees?
