      Thanks for the videos! :)

      1) In 1st touche the ball hits the player in the hip.2nd touch,in the stomach.CORRECT call
      2)Offside.CORRECT call.
      However the gesticulation and movement of the referee was so lethargic and too calm in both situations.He is walking on the field like referees in 7th leagues do (with all respect). He looked uninterested in match. And we are talking about FIFA referee!
      3)Offside.The AR had bad position.INCORRECT call
      4)Clear foul.RC fort DOGSO. INCORRECT call
      5)No foul,very good decision. CORRECT call
      6)Well,we can discus about advantage,but i think that ref should whistle a free kick.
      7)No intention, there is little distance between the two players.CORRECT call
      8)No DOGSO, no SPA.CORRECT call
