World Cup

2012-05-21

Butenko took charge of a match in the group stage of the 1986 World Cup. Valery Vladimirovich Butenko then was a citizen of the USSR. He retired in 1991 and had been a national ref from 1976 and an international ref from 1979.

Butenko
There was another international ref from Russia called Butenko. Andrei Butenko is younger and came later, there might be some overlap and a match or two we mixed up.

career
A little peculiar, his career. No matches of note, then the World Cup, and then more of the same. First and second round matches mostly for the UEFA Cup.
