      Honduras-Ecuador

  3. It is Williams for Honduras - Ecuador. Nishimura fourth official.

  4. Should we see that as a lack of trust in Nishimura? Nevertheless time for him to get a game in round 3 I suppose

    ReplyDelete
  5. Kuipers for SUI - FRA. Moen fourth. Another full European appointment.

  6. Well now it seems quite clear Gassama for Argentina-Iran and Shukralla for Germany-Ghana (or Nigeria-Bosnia).

    1. I would think O'Leary makes the most sense for German-Ghana.

      Gassama on ARG-IRN
      Shukralla on NGA-BIH

      Delete
    2. So, just O'Leary will be the only main referee without appointment. I hope No. Anyway expected an european for SWI-FR and I was thinking indeed to Kuipers.

      OT just 1 question for Chefren if I can in this post: do you have an idea on who will be demoted in Serie A and who will eb promoted from Serie B ? If it's not the right place you can answer on my e-mail address.

    3. No problems, expect a mail in a few time. I will write to you soon.

    4. I totally agree with the predictions of USRef.
      NGA-BIH is more important because it could be decisive for place 2. The other two matches have the best team against the worst team in the groups, so normally clear results.

    Nishimura and Roldan are the only main referees appointed as fourth offical so far, that might be a very clear signal. If Williams does well in his first appointment, he might receive a bigger appointment in final round of group stage.

      Haimoudi, OLeary, Gassama, all were appointed as 4th off

      Delete
    2. Indeed, but that was before their first games as main referee. Thats quite a difference.

      Delete
    3. Perhaps Anonymous meant the only main referees who already had a match, then appointed again as fourth officials. And that's true, only Nishimura and Roldan are in this situation. This could mean something, or nothing...

  8. I am wondering..... Is it a coincidence that Webb, Eriksson and Proenca didnt get high profile matches.... or is it because rumours of retirement are true.....

    1. I think they have been frozen for high risk or high level match, especially on the 3rd matchday, even if many many rumors told us that they will retire after WC, After NIshimura's and Roldan's experiences, FIFA don't want to risk any other high level referee but keep some of them ready for big next matches. We know that nutrality confederation rule is not sio strick at this tounaments so I suppose that after group stage, it will not be kept anymore.

  9. My predictions:

    GER-GHA: Shukralla
    ARG-IRN: Gassama
    NGA-BIH: O'Leary
    USA-POR: Ricci
    BEL-RUS: Rizzoli
    KOR-ALG: Mazic

      Very good prediction based on logic. However, IMO FIFA will not appoint Shukralla, Gassama and O'Leary to an important match as their first game in this world cup, otherwise they would have been assigned a match by now. Probably I would say, Gassama for ARG-IRN, O'Leary for KOR-ALG, Shukralla may have to wait until the final round of group games to have his first match.

    And what about Irmatov? Next matches for him?

    ReplyDelete
  11. 4 further reports are uploaded.

    1. Excellent, thanks! IMHO the four candidates for the final match are, now Proenca, Irmatov (but he needs a very good performance in the following matches), Cakir, Kuipers. Do you agree?

      Delete
    2. Proenca has not even had his first match so you better wait a bit.
      I have a feeling in my guts that tells me we'll see a Central- or North American final referee this time.

      Delete
    3. Who are you thinking about?

    I agree with you ! I would like to see Proença in the final, he deserves (:

  13. My understanding is Peter O'Leary is on Bosnia vs Nigeria.

    Ok, why wasn't it a penalty for Costa Rica? Bad positioning, bad assisting, the Italian player has just driven straight through Campbell. Seriously!
