General assessment
Nothing positive to write homeIt seems Brych wanted to get out of this game unscathed just to advance to the next stage. From the beginning the advantage rule wasn't applied (e.g. 2', 9', 27'). Unfortunately, in too many cases where he stopped play, his foul detection was dubious at best (e.g. 18', 36', 45 1', 85')."Collina"In the WC 2002 final, Mr. Collina did his best not to be blamed for any goal scored in the encounter. Thus, whenever the ball was lobbed into one of the penalty-areas, he was ready to whistle in favour of the defence. He did so about 6-7 times during the match (once it was overtly ridiculous against Rivaldo), but never indicated a penalty-kick - just dissipating the game of any thrilling moment for the ref's reputation to be intact. Well then, if it is a valid policy in the final, why nIn the footsteps of Collinaot take a leaf out of Collina's "book" and use it in the group stage? So we has very few free-kicks given to attacking players around their opponents' penalty-area, while the defense was awarded free-kicks inside and outside the "box".The Mitrovic-Lichtsteiner caseTwice was Mitrovic clearly held by Swiss defenders inside their penalty-area. In both cases the whistle went against the Serbian centre-forward. Both incidents happened when the score-line was 1:1. If the first decision (67') was hardly explicable (not really...), the second one was a gross injustice. Lictsteiner and another Swiss went down with mitrovic, theur arms all over him (87'), but the ref went for the "easy" decision - "spotting" a Mitrovic infringement. Compounding his atrocious foul detection, Brych brandished a yellow card to the complaining Serb.VARsNow we arrive at the VAR question - why did they not "save" the ref? I think it has always to do with the people this team is composed of. In this case, two Germans were among the four - Dankert and Zwayer - the latter heading the team. Could it be, they weren't ready to overrule their "superior" colleague's decisions?
