Today, Dias confirmed why is said to be one of the most promising referees in European football. Always calm and close to the action and this time, his decisions were mostly right. He was right not to fall for some French dives...assistant referees good, cards as well, so no complaints this time! It is so amazing that the speed is very high in those matches and that the players do not stop playing for 50 seconds after a foul and discuss with the referee about a possible card. Rooney can learn from these young guys!
We passed the group stage. These teams will be at U17 WC Mexico 2011: Denmark, England, France, Netherlands, Germany and Czech Rep.! The semifinals will be: DEN-GER and NED-ENG. Denmark has advantages: Germany lost three players today after their second booking, Denmark won all three matches, they seem to be the championship favourite besides the Netherlands
DEN-GER Artur Soares (POR) - Raúl Cabanero Martínez (ESP), Vencel Tóth (HUN); NED-CZE Stavros Tritsonis (GRE) - Ridiger Cokaj (ALB), Giorgi Kruashvili (GEO); Final: Steven McLean (SCO), Ridiger Cokaj (ALB), Vencel Tóth (HUN). Liany, Delferiere for semi-finals as 4th Official, Tohver as final 4th official
The appointments are out!
NED-ENG: Soares Dias (POR), DEN-GER: McLean (SCO). So the final will probably go to Tohver
