Jamaican Peter Prendergast was a FIFA referee from 1994 till the end of 2006.

Cups

World Cup 2002, Confederations Cup, the Olympic Games, a few Gold Cups, many qualifiers, have a look at his palmares, the list is long.

What will always be held against him is the (legitimate?) Belgian goal he canceled in the 2002 World Cup knock-out round.

2006

Again Peter Prendergast was selected for the 2006 World Cup, but he got injured stumbling over a stone in Germany while having a run. A scan revealed an older injury and FIFA was not amused him not telling them. Prendergast and his team were sent home.

LONG SERVER

  • It was Peter Prendergast who disallowed a perfectly good goal by Belgium at the 2002 World Cup quarter-final match against Brazil. He disallowed Marc Wilmots' goal, the Belgian forward who supposedly had pushed a Brazilian player. Replays showed he didn't touch the man. If the goal had been allowed, Belgium would deservedly have been in the lead and might have gone on to win the match.
    After the match Wilmots told the press that Prendergast had said he was sorry, but the Jamaican denied it and even made an official complaint against Wilmots.
  • His best memory is a reception "in my honour by my national association after my return from the 2002 FIFA World Cup".
  • Peter Prendergast is the president of the Jamaican Referees' Association.
