World Cup

2012-01-15

Two matches in the 1970 World Cup. Lau van Ravens was almost 50 years old when he took charge of the 1972 UEFA Cup final. Soon after that he retired. International ref 1965-1972.

Uruguay
His very last match was a friendly between Feyenoord and Uruguay. It was also the last match of the legendary Feyenoord player Coen Moelijn.
Van Ravens was the ref when the (almost) same Uruguay team took on the Soviet Union in the quarter-final of the World Cup in 1970. Uruguay scored in the extra time from a pass given on or behind the goal line.
