Refereeing Analysis for Matches 19-21 (Kassai ITA-SWE, Clattenburg CZE-CRO, Mažić ESP-TUR)

Being busy those days, the analyses are a bit shorter as usual. Nonetheless, please find all relevant situations and our marks below.


Viktor Kassai's Team in Italy vs Sweden

Unfortunately, not enough time for too detailed analyses those days so that I just want to present you our marks and some small impressions.

What I saw was pretty good, consistent line and much better foul detection compared to the opener game. He dealt well with Italy wasting some time and delaying the re-start of play at the end of the game - also good that he added 1 minute on for that!

One deliberate handball could and maybe should have been given - it blocked a shot on goal with the arm being quite outstretched. Additionally, Chiellini blocked / checked an opponent recklessly off the ball, maybe also off Kassai's vicinity. All this is included in the videos. The most crucial call occurred in the additional time.



Important Situations:

VIDEO 1, VIDEO 2


1| Penalty in 90+4'?

No, not really. There was a holding, that's for sure, and there was a high foot. But both actually did not impede the attacker. That's a poor argument indeed. Holding is holding you might argument, however the holding was neither visible for Kassai nor did it really have an effect. The Swedish went to ground for nothing a second too late. The Laws of the Game would justify a (soft) penalty call, common sense and the moment as well as the context in the game don't do it for my taste. Correct decision.

Mark Clattenburg's Team in Czech Rep. vs Croatia

Mark Clattenburg kept a very heated and tensed game under very good control. As said in a previous analysis, half of the job is done if you reach that in such a game. In the moments of the fireworks that exploded on the field of play, he reacted quite OK in my view, too. At UEFA level, going into the tunnel would probably not much appreciated as the show simply must go on. While play was re-starting, Croatian fans were still fighting with each other on the seats. Incredible and surreal: football on the field, violence off the field, not caught by the UEFA cameras of course.



A missed free-kick for a reckless tackle right in front of the Croatian penalty area line in 39' costs him some points in the assessment, but does not lower the overall level of officiating, which was definitely high, that much. Also because the biggest decision of the game was taken correctly.


Important Situations:



1| Penalty in 90+1'

The key decision of the game happened in the added time: Absolutely correct penalty for deliberate handball. The ball was "travelling for years", as our user RayHD rightly said after the game, and the arm was unnaturally highly raised - Vida clearly saw the ball coming. No doubt that this was a deliberate handball, well spotted by Clattenburg and most likely his AAR1 Taylor. But, there was actually no reason for a yellow card. Actually a mistake. Nevertheless, the penalty was a brave and game-decisive, correct call.

Milorad Mažić's Team in Spain vs Turkey

The Serbian team attended their second match at this EURO 2016, too, and faced one of the most one-sided matches of the tournament so far (VIDEO). Mažić started with a very soft yellow card after only 50 seconds (actually a normal shoulder-shoulder-collision, with the arm of Ramos maybe going out a bit). The next yellow card in 9' was clearly wrong. It would be fully correct and great if the use of the arm had been reckless and targeted at Busquets' face, but it wasn't. The Spaniard simulated a facial contact and somehow deceived Mažić. Anyway, his acceptance was high throughout the game and even this card was accepted by Burak (laughing while showing a card is not ideal, but in the interaction with the Turkish player it obtained good results, so it's OK for me).


In 21', Mažić confirmed one of his weaknesses observed in his first game: identifying and adequately punishing stud-tackles. The replay show that the official was clearly focussed on the duel and had a free line of sight. A yellow card for a clear reckless tackle should have been given - mandatory caution.

In the rest of the game, the Serbian delivered a normal, good performance with a few irritating gestures (83') but will full control and no bigger problems. A match which looked difficult on paper, but which was - actually - quite easy-going and is quite ungrateful for referees as single mistakes dominate the overall impression.

The offside goal "missed" by his AR2 was already analyzed in a separate post, so that there is little more to say from my side.

  1. Spain vs Turkey: AR2 - 7,9; difficult (or impossible) to see, but still is a crucial mistake. I don't know why mark 8,4.

    1. That wasn't a crucial mistake.

      Delete
    2. read the article attached in the analysis and then you understand why we can't give 7.9.

  2. it's not a crucial mistake,Because Spain already lead 2-0

    1. That's just one of the many reasons, not the only one.

    2. That would be no reason. Even with 2-0 Turkey could have come back. It's only due to the reasons mentioned in the article attached. Just read it.

  3. Clattenburg really can't get 8.4.
    Just because it's Mark Clattenburg

    1. Yes, you are right. We normally collect marks like that: looking at the names, and then giving points. Watching matches...nonsense :)

      I gave him 8.4 because of a quite challenging match which was well controlled, a correct penalty decision (8,5 or 8,6 as a starting mark) - the missing YC in 39' which was a quite blatant mistake (-0,1 at least). So... either you arrive at 8.4 or 8.5.

    2. I fully understand the reasons, but I don't agree with them :) nothing more, nothing less

      Delete
    3. Well then tell us why you don't agree with them.. I explaint how we came to the mark, in what point do you differ?

      Delete
    4. 8.5 as a starting mark IMO.

      *39' Not just missed free-kick but also YC (SPA)
      So, -0.1 (-0.2)

      Just to add, referee had so much luck it wasn't inside penalty area. He misjudged the situation, thinking that defender played the ball (you can see ref's gesture)

      Also, two situations we can discuss about possible missed YC:
      17' for CRO #11
      45' for CRO #14

      My impression is that in previous matches we reduced marks (for -0.2 total) in discussions for the same quantity of missed fouls and YCs.

      Delete
    5. Just to accentuate,it was generally very good performance.
      This is only my opinion about mark.
      Regards.

      Delete
    6. About 17' - for me no YC, about 45', could be a YC, but I cannot call it a CLEARLY missed YC without any replay.

      In previous matches, the YCs resulting in -0.1 were all CLEAR yellow cards (GER-UKR or IRL-SWE e.g., there was no room for discussion).

      Delete
  4. Mažić gave first yc cause Ramos stop promising attack, not for arm.
    10-12 yeras ago Uefa told to ARs : if you not sure if its offside or not , to let play on. This situation its a typical example. So looking with uefa eyes it is thumb up.
    You dont mention missing yc's and fouls by Clatts as we can see in uploaded video

    1. I know that he gave it for SPA. But as I doubt that there was a real foul at all, then it cannot be SPA. Or at least it is "very soft" (= not clearly wrong) for me. Just my feeling.

      What fouls in Clatts' videos do you mean?

      Delete
  5. Thank you for reply.
    No way that Starting mark in a group phase can be 8.5. In most cases starting mark is 8.2 . Collinas mark in WC final 2002 was 8.7
    ABOUT Clatts :freeze and look the situation in video 1 on 4.29 obvious missed free kick 17m from goal and a mandatory YC .
    5:26 good advantage but missed yc
    Video 2 : 1:28 missed bigger contact on Mandzukic and play on , than in 2:02 almost same situation and Clatts gives free kick and a YC. My opinion no yc.
    3:28 missed obvious foul.

    1. Uuuh. I think you do not know UEFA's marking scale. The starting mark is 8.4 always. In quite or very challenging matches it is 8.5...

      Delete
