Pretty solid first half, good talk with players and the game control, solid!

The Technical instructions for referees for the tournament item says 1) Act firmly (red card) against challenges involving excessive force which therefore endanger the safety of the opponent, including the illegal use of arms and elbows. The players have got to feel safe on the field of play. There have been at least two tackles so far that have pushed that advice to the limit and they gone totally unpunished. I am not suggesting they had to be straight reds but the players should have been left in no doubt of the seriousness. Although I do agree Peter has had good dialogue with the players and had a good game in many respects, I think he needed to be stricter if consistency across all the games is to be achieved.

Great game by the ref. What an ending!!! The turks were moaning about not being allowed a replacement on, but I don't think there was a break in play. GOALIE SENT OFF AS I WRITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What next....!

I agree in 100%, great game and great ref's job, Folken deserved red card I'm only wondering how could he be so irresponsible in key-moment of the match,

A lot at stake for both teams so the play was very physical. Of course, the Referee can’t whistle every little foul but, still, I thought that lots of offenses went unpunished, many of which warranted yellow cards. For the first time in this tournament (at least that I know of), there seemed to be a disagreement between the R and an AR. 14 minutes into the first half, the AR signaled for a throw-in in favor of the Czech Republic while the R is giving the throw-in for Turkey. The AR changed the direction of the re-start to match that of the R. However, the replay showed that the ball had bounced off the turkish player’s arm and that the AR, who was much closer to the action than the R, had made the correct call. Even though the R has the final call on the direction, this sort of situation should not happen at this level, especially considering that the officials are equipped with radios. That said, I think that Pieter Fröjdfeldt maintained good control of the game, especially in the second half when things were getting fast and furious.

I know we've been through this debate before, (last World Cup), and the pros and cons remain the same, but wouldn't it be good to hear what the Ref is saying on occassions!
