Calls: Most of the fouls were such that they were difficult to ignore and Pelosi's fouls did warrant the yellows, however, knowing what a second yellow would mean probably a severe taliking would have been sufficient. I do not think the game needed a red, especi
Style: He kept up with play and appeared to be in good position to make the calls.
The US team showed that they can do other things than just pass the ball around and made the first half "more fun". Would have been nice to see how the game ends without taking off a player, but even then NZ was more focused in making into the final 16 than winning the game. A bit boring that was.In general the crew did not do a bad job, but a few key calls ruined it for Nijhuis. Being an easy game he could not get it just right, I wonder what he would do in a more challanging game?
