Laszlo Vagner (FIFA 1991-1998) took charge of many matches in the last century, but one will stay in everybody's memory: 1998 World Cup group stage match Chile vs Cameroon. Vagner disallowed a goal by Cameroon for a push that didn't happen.

riot

Cameroon did not make the next round and people in the Cameroon capital Yaounde attacked white owned businesses.

  • Vagner retired at the end of 1998, because he wanted to make room for younger referees. First he only wanted to retire from the international stage, but later he changed his mind and finished his career in the domestic league as well too.
  • He was two times the head of the referees and made drastic changes. In 2006 three FIFA refs (Hanacsek, Dubraviczky, Saskoy) had to retire, all for different reasons, and he nominated only one (Fabian) to replace them.
  • During his stint as referee boss, Hungary had the youngest referee squad in Europe.
  • For a long time he was the last Hungarian referee who had a Champions Leauge match. It was in 1998. His successor was Viktor Kassai, in 2007.
