Control: players responded to his signals, command, and general presence.
Calls: consistant throughout the match and issued cautions when necessary. good advantage played in the first half and cautions issued correctly, going back to the original foul
Neutrality: did not notice anything that would say he's not nuetral
Style: my favorite. Calm, composed and in control.
Busacca always impresses me. Sometimes he seems like he didn't get a good night's sleep before the match, but he is one of the most consistent referees especially compared to the english police officer. Good job massimo!
Control: had control for full 90 minutes. step up his level when the game required it.
Calls: good decisions. avoided calling trifling fouls
very good performance from busacca. as noted above, he stepped up his game to match the players. issued cautions, applied advantage, and communicated with players very well. wish he would of performed like this in South Africa. well done!
