  1. @Niclas and @Chefren : Which appointments of Matchday 1 seemed the most interesting to you?? Which performances were the best??

    1. I didn't watch so many games, just one or two.
      About the most interesting appointments, I would say: Mohammed Abdulla Hassan Mohamed for Argentina - England and then Walter López Castellanos for Italy - Uruguay.

    2. Looks like Walter Lopez has failed to impress... He has been given Germany v Vanuatu on MD3!!

    3. I wouldn't necessarily conclude he failed to impress.

      With confederational neutrality for the first round and another good CONCACAF referee at the tournament, there are only so many options for Lopez. Germany-Vanuatu should be easy, but technically it will be for Germany (or Vanuatu) to advance. Plus, a softer second match for Lopez allows him to be available for some of the tougher matches in the R16, QF or beyond.

    4. To be honest I can't see Walter Lopez staying in South Korea after the group stages at least if his performance is taken into account!!
