Control: Looked really nervous and fuzzy. Needed cards to control the game.
7.0
Calls: Eight yellow cards seemed a bit over the top in this particular match. De Bruyne could have been sent off for a kick against an opponent.
6.9
Style: A little too narrow for my liking, but at last a ref who doesn't has a problem to early book a player.

General assessment
Not bad, but lost it a little bit by overdoing it.

Control through cards

FIFA WC 2018 group stage:
Belgium - Panama, 3 - 0. Fisht, Sochi, Russia, 2018-06-18

Janny Sikazwe showed no hesitation to book players early (Meunier 14'') and issued an astonishing eight cautions in an not so unfair match. The average number of yellow cards at this tournament was 3,4 after the group stage, so his approach seems a bit over the top. His body language fitted this slightly overmotivated line perfectly - fuzzy and a bit too theatrical for my liking.

Decision making
The foul detection was not at all bad and also the general decision making was in line with the general level at this tournament. In critical situations, the refs at this WC 2018 tolerate a lot of dissent and where I thought more cards at the right time would calm things down, FIFA seems to again have the position that booking for dissent is not desired. Sikazwe ignored these guidelines to a great extent and booked very easily which stood out even more compared to his colleagues. De Bruyne received an "orange" yellow for a kick near the stomach, but I would have ruled accidental contact myself and thought a red card too harsh.
