  1. Martin Vazquez was never appointed until now.
    Our friends from South America can help us saying more...

    1. Vazquez got injured in a training in UAE, they waited for him to recover before group stage ended, but that never happend, so that Uruguay is the only SA Country that did not had a ref in this pre-WC tournaments (JJOO, u20, u17) we will have to see if he gets an other chance in the club WC

  2. Juan Soto technical judge in the two matches, at the same time?

  3. The FO on Japan - Sweden is Slim Jedidi (TUN).

    1. Sorry JACO and Edward, my mistake.

  4. Prediction for quarterfinals:
    BRA-MEX: Abdou, Al Marri, Marad, Rocchi
    HON-SWE: Orosco, Castro, Valda, Jedidi
    URU-NGA: Clattenburg, Child, Beck, Bonilla
    ARG-CIV: Stark, Salver, Pickel, Hauata
