Tiny - big

2012-05-30

Almost the only way for a tiny nation like the Seychelles to achieve anything at all in international football is to get a referee selected to officiate in big tournaments. Luckily the Seychelles have Eddy Maillet.

African cups
Maillet became an international referee in 2001 and only three years later he refereed two group stage matches in the Africa Cup of Nations in Tunis 2004.
From then on was the CAN every two years: 2006, 2008 and 2010, qualifiers, the final of two Confederation Cups. For more matches and results see his palmares.

Afrasia
Living on the Seychelles must be a good thing for a referee, Eddy Maillet does not only take charge of African matches, he was also selected for the 2007 Asia Cup. Two months later he was active in the u17 World Cup in Korea.

also
Eddy is the National Referee Coordinator of the Seychelles.

World Cup
Eddy got two matches in the group stage of the World Cup. Slovakia - Paraguay and Honduras - Chile.

Big Match
In 2009 Algeria and Egypt had to play a third play-off for a place in the World Cup in a place called Omdurman in the Sudan. The two countries have a history of violence and the play-offs were much about throwing stones at player's buses etc. The third match was refereed by Maillet.
