The first of the great Danish referees. Peter Mikkelsen officiated at two World Cups (90, 94) and two European Championships (92, 96).

If you take charge of that many high profile matches there is always something to talk about. Or be angry about, as the Romanians did when their goal wasn't allowed even though the ball had clearly crossed the line in a Euro 96 match against Bulgaria. Mikkelsen is still asked in Danish newspapers what he thinks off electronic gadgets to help the referee.
