    1. Source? Is that your prediction?

  2. Unexpected choice, at least for me. Vinčić was in my opinion the best referee of the tournament and he deserved the final. About Mažeika, true that he was not so bad, one can still say in both games there weren't crucial mistakes and more or less it was OK, but surely there were referees with better performances. So now one between Bastien and Gözübüyük will be out from everything. I disagree with this choice. My prediction for the final is Bastien.

  4. My question to Slovenian readers: is the correct spelling Vinčič or Vinčić? Does Slovenian alphabet includes the letter "ć" at all? This name is spelled differently in the web.

    1. I believe it`s Vinčić although Slovenian alphabet does`t include ć.
      His surname is spelled on official site og ZNSS as Vinčić.

    2. It's Ć ;)

      " The letters q, w, x, y are excluded from the standard spelling, as are some South Slavic graphemes, ć, đ, however they are used as independent letters in some encyclopedias and dictionary listings; for foreign proper nouns or toponyms are often not transcribed as they are in some other Slavic languages, such as partly in Russian or entirely in Serbian."

      So, I belive that mr Vinčić have some Serbian origins.

    3. But here it's Vinčič :D

      The same case is Kovačič(ć) and Obrenovič(ć)...

      Delete
    4. In Slovenian alphabet there is no letter ć. Therefore, when they write his name, they write č, even it is not correct. In Slovenia live lots of people that are ordinary Serbs (e.g. in Maribor there are lot of Serbs) or Croats. Slavko Vinčić's origins are either Serbian or Croatian (Vinčić - this surname is more likely from Croatia). In Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and till several years ago in Montenegro (they have some new letters now), there is a rule: write as you speak, read as it is written - we read every letter in a way that it is written. So, Vinčić has to be read as Ć, no doubt about that.

    5. Thanks, Jelena! What about Kovačič(ć) and Obrenovič(ć)?

      Delete
    6. Kovačić is more Croatian, Obrenović is Serbian (for example, we have Obrenović dinasty in our history).
      Jelena more studiously explained you about previous question, well done ! :)

  5. As I also think that Vinčić belonged in a group of best officials in this tournament, probably the mistakes of AR2 Kovačič were maybe the reason for not to appoint team Vinčić to the final. As for Mažeika, although I didn`t see him in any of his games on this tournament I can`t really say anything on his performance, but marks on this site would suggest that there were referees that would deserve SF more then him.
    Best of luck for the appointed referees!

    1. I had the same idea, I also thought that Kovačič small mistakes in some situations were the reason for this choice, but to be honest the semifinal is still something very important. In case of missed trust by committee in the assistant referee, he wouldn't have been appointed again.

  6. With Mazeika in a semi-final, especially after his first performance, it is impossible to predict the final... Gözübüyük? Bastien? Kruzliak? UEFA - everything is possible.

    1. Btw, Vincic in 4 days 2 times handling Italy in Cracow. Indeed: Everything is possible.

      Delete
  7. Please note: both fourth officials from Poland. No assistant referees from other officiating teams. This could mean that all the other crews have been already sent home, except the one appointed for the final. So, given that Spain and Germany are still in the tournament, one could deduce that Stieler and Gil Manzano are very likely already returning home.

  8. Just small remark of topic; after watching Vinčić yesterday I really think that Vladimir Šajn work here in Slovenia has to be applauded. Three very good referees from small country like Slovenia really admirable, and I hope we would see this kind of progress also in coming years.

    1. Tomaz, after having watched Obrenovic live several times, I believe he is a huge talent as well. 100 % agreed.

  9. I agree, big suprise! Bastien and Gozubuyuk deserve the semi final, Vincic final. Mazeika???

  12. The semifinal in Krakow is played at 21:00 - not 20:45 :-)

  13. Difficult game for Lithuanian team regarding key match incidents. Four penalty appeals waved away by Mazeika:

    03' - https://streamable.com/6dplz

    08' - https://streamable.com/ln1cs
    https://streamable.com/k1m1y

    27' - https://streamable.com/nqntx

    44' - https://streamable.com/auavl

    Really consistent approach, firmer than in previous games, not whistling easy falls, able to talk to players. Well done!

    I hope DutchRef will forgive me sharing those videos from "his" game ;)

    1. Stonewall penalty missed in 8th minute, so obvious, and in 3rd minute for me it is clear PK. There is a contact - the way attacker fell showe that, and camera from the back of the players confirms that.

  14. Very tight offside denying third goal to Germany (minute 78). After the first replay the decision seems correct

    ReplyDelete
  15. Now (78') a very crucial offside call by AR1, disallowing 3-2 by England.
    Some seconds before, player was clearly in offside, but at the moment of the pass it looked almost on level. I think that arm was surely in offside but this doesn't count. It is possible that the upper body was in a very very tight offside, however NO FLAG would have been better I think. Very difficult.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am not entirely sure about 3', due to the replays. In the live perspective, it was a clear penalty for me. The replay angles simply do not clarify it. My feeling is: stonewall penalty, but to be honest if UEFA does not have more angles Mazeika must be supported.

    Clear penalty missed in 8' - also playing the ball does not make it better. Clear, punishable contact at the feet.

    As for the other rejected appeals I fully agree with the referee team.

    In general, he is IMO very uncommunicative, distanced to the players, showing little body language and presence. On the other hand, his decisions were widely correct apart from 8' (and maybe 3'). Clear line and consistent approach. The only thing disturbing me: refereeing is more than taking decisions, and in this area I think there is room for improvement.

    On the offside goal: the head and the arms were offside - Mr Simkus seems to have eagle eyes. Respect for this great decision.

  17. What about this elbow? Tool or weapon?

    1. For me, YC is still ok. One can't be sure it was deliberate.

    2. For me clearly no RC. There is nearly no hitting movement, he just goes into the duel with a leading arm.

  18. Spain-Italy

    16 min.-Clear yc not given

    ReplyDelete
  19. Minute 15' in ESP - ITA: Vinčić decided for a warning in a situation in which YC was mandatory. Reckless tackle from behind without hitting the ball.

    1. Now (30') the same player with another foul at the edge of penalty area.
      Still very lucky to escape from YC.

    2. 50'...Now Gagliardini gets booked.

  20. 45+1...Now for less dangerous foul Italian player gets booked.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Finally Gagliardini got what he deserved :) Definitely, I can't blame Vinčić.

    ReplyDelete
  22. 87 missed yellow for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  23. 8.2 would be perhaps harsh, I think that 8.3 can be the right mark for Vinčić today. He has a big potential, match was always under full control, foul detection was good, but surely some things to be reviewed in disciplinary control. At least one clear missed YC, perhaps two. However, in the overall context, a very good under 21 tournament for him. Excellent achievement for the future.

  25. I agree with Niclas and Ray, Mazeika no communication, and missed clear penalty. There are some improvements my mark will be 7.8, Vincic much better then Mazeika. Better attitude and communication, match Italy - Germany he make better impression, but ok, still no big problems my mark 8.2, now waiting for Bastien.
