Netherlands - Scotland (Semifinal)
Referee: Jonathan Lardot  (BEL)
Assistant referee 1: Jure Praprotnik (SVN)
Assistant referee 2: Istvan Albert (HUN)
Fourth official: Aleksandrs Anufrijevs (LVA)

  1. Ekberg for the final then?

    1. It seems so, considering that the fourth officials should be the men in charge of the final. Ekberg main referee and Anufrijevs fourth. But of course, let's wait and see.

    Harkam really in a SF after Germany-Switzerland? Wow that's a surprise for me. I watched that match on Euro Sport and if I remember correctly a penalty could be given but for me it was definately not red card (for me it was maybe not even yellow.) That means others must have made even bigger mistakes.....

    For me Ekberg final with Lardot as FO

    1. I think this rather means that the (desperate?) search for a good Austrian referee after Schörgenhofer and Einwaller goes on.. these tournaments are not always characterized by on-field performance principles.

      My bet would be Ekberg - Praprotnik - Nebben - Harkam - Vassaras for the final.

      That's ridiculous.I think these tournaments are there to learn. Thus referees should also learn that one bad performence is exit!Search for Austrian or not! DD

    3. Yep I agree with you.

      Can Hugh Dallas observe a referee from Latvia or Azerbaijian? Surely not, they are snob, they want the Elite.

      Did anyone saw any match? Me not, so we can just guess, but definetely the designations are mostly based on refereees performance.

    My bet: Ekberg for the final with Korniyko and Albert as assistants and Anufrijevs as fourth official.

      Ekberg, Korniyko, Nebben or Praprotnik

    My opinion Ekberg for final, because UEFA need elite referee from Sweden, after J.Erikson retired and this referee very promising. But also UEFA could surprise and appoint referee from Latvia. ( for example U-19 final in Lithuania, referee was Kulbalkov from Belarussia) We will see :)
