Rizzoli

Germany - Argentina 1 - 0 Rizzoli

A WC final without a report? Let's do something about this although I have to say that this is a tough call to be fair and square at the same time. Rizzoli got the final and he refereed in his usual way again: Cool, generous and lenient. But as almost all officials in this WC he fell short of a performance worth at this level because he avoided controversial decisions at both ends.

Critical situations

10'' Correct disallowed goul for Argentina (offside). ++ 17'' Kramer is clattered and flattened by two Argentinian players in the box. It looked not to be deliberate on the surface, but good grief after the replay I have more than doubts about that. Hard to detect. 30'' Bad foul by Howedes with studs up. Mere yellow, lucky to remain on the pitch. 57'' The Neuer scene: He jumps and fists the ball away colliding into Higuain on the edge of the box. A very difficult call, but I think a pen and a yellow for Neuer would have been appropriate. Rizzoli gives freekick Germany - a blatant mistake. Extra time: Two borderline challenges by two already booked Argentinian players - spared by pure tactical reasons by the official. Not really courageous by Rizzoli.

Cüneyt Cakir

referee/ bio

"My goal is the World Cup", he once stated, and why not. For starters he officiated a qualifier for the UEFA Cup and one for Euro 2008 in 2007.
He moved up to 'UEFA premier development category referee' at the start of 2010 and to Elite in June 2011.

semi final

In April 2010, despite of being "only" premier development, Cakir was assigned a semi-final of the Europa League, and in September of the same year a CL group stage match. A reason may have been the bad performances of some elite category refs that year. Perhaps UEFA just wanted some fresh talent quickly.

Bjorn Kuipers

referee/ bio

A son of a referee, Bjorn Kuipers decided early in his life to become a referee as well. In 2006, at the age of 33, Kuipers received his FIFA badge. Kuipers became an elite category ref as of June 2009.

Finals

Kuipers took charge of the final of the 2006 u17 European Championships. Almost always a good sign for a ref when that happens in his first year.
Then in 2009 he got the final of the European u21 tournament. He was an elite ref by then.
