STELIOS TRIFONOS

  • Trifonos also referees futsal matches.
  • When FC Utrecht, a mediocre side from The Netherlands, scored 4 goals against Tirana in a qualifier for the 2011 Europa League, the Dutch were very happy albeit a bit surprised: were they that good?
    It turned out playing well did not have much to do with it, part of the Albanian team had put money on them losing with 4 goals difference.
