    Interesting...two referees from not so big countries....change of policy in UEFA?

      No problem, only youth games.

  2. How much work for Petrescu: two penalties and a RC

      Actually, 3 penalties


      any opnions?

    2. The first penalty was absolutely correct. But I have some doubts about whether it was really DOGSO...the ball bounced away and the goalkeeper almost already caught it when the foul happened, so it was not that likely that the attacker would have had an OGSO...on the other hand the foul was actually almost serious foul play...a YC would have been too little from my point of view.

      The others two are correct in my opinion.

  3. As for Raczkowski, I wanted to report on him, but Eurosport aired only the second half. So this is not possible. Online there is only the second half available.
