* Pre-selected for World Cup 2014


  1. Mexico - Panama 2-1 all three goals were scored starting from a tight onside position by players. Especially in the 1-0 situation, you can see that there are t least two if not three correct NO FLAGS prior to the goa.
    Very good performance by both assistants. And please take a look at 2-1 goal.. amazing.
    Here everything:

  2. You should see what happend in Colombia vs Chile match, Oliveira whistled 3 penalties and issued one red card, at the end Colombia was able to qualify after being losing 0-3 in the first half and drawing the match on the 85 minute.

    1. I watched the penalties given. The first one and the third seem correct, I have doubts on the second (the first given to Colombia).
      Anyway, correct me if I'm wrong, it wasn't important to draw this match for Colombia, due to Uruguay defeat, they might have lost the match without problems being still directly qualified with 26 points..

    2. Yes for Colombia was it not important, but for Chile it was a problem because they need one more point for being sure in the World Cup. That also counts for Ecuador, so that the might send Uruguay to play with Jordan making a simple draw in Santiago

    3. I think it's sure now a draw between Ecuador and Chile, they will renounce to play. The qualification to WC it's too important.
      And yes... we are going to have Uruguay - Jordan.
      I must admit not a difficult task for Cavani & co... but the match of course must be played.

    Burkina Faso - Algeria
    crucial penalty given by Janny Sikazwe for an alleged handball: in my opinion absolutely wrong... this penalty decided the match in favor of Burkina
    I don't know why CAF appointed this referee and not a preselected official

    1. Horrible decision, Sikazwe should have overruled Marengula and ignored the flag.

  4. Goal - No goal situation happened in Ethiopia - Nigeria. AR involved was Menkouande. Very very difficult but my feeling is that he took the correct decision, no goal, an amazing save by a defender on the line.

    1. And now AR2 Yanoussa Moussa allowed a very controversial goal to Ethiopia, another ghost goal situation... amazing match for the assistants!
