Control: Control was good, especially at the beginning, maybe a bit less later in the match, but overall ok.
7.0
Calls: Assistants were almost perfect. Correct goal disallowed by Yeo. The given cards were correct, but he missed some fouls. Doubts about a possible penalty.
7.0
Neutrality: He was neutral, ok, but I would have liked to see more attention towards both team.
7.0
Style: Approach and communication with players were ok, but he seemed a bit lazy in running. For this reason, sometimes he was a bit far from the play.
7.3
General assessment
About style I totally agree with maya, what he wrote in Morocco-Tunisia report is totally correct: Bennett is lazy on fitness, however having a really good approach with players. Finally, I want to say that he did minor mistakes and maybe he missed a card in first half.

Other Encounters

Not bad but not excellent

CAF AFRICAN NATIONS CUP 2012 group stage:
Ghana - Guinea, 1 - 1. Stade d'Angondjé, Libreville, Gabon, 2012-02-01

In the last matchday of group D this was a crucial match for Ghana and Guinea. Ghana needed just a draw to be sure of the knockout stage, Guinea had to win and to hope in a Mali defeat against Botswana. Match ended 1-1, after a intensive game. The referee in charge was Daniel Bennett from South Africa, in my opinion one of the best african officials at moment. His assistants were Yeo from Ivory Coast and Siwela from South Africa. Gassama from Gambia worked as fourth official.

Very good approach
Bennett approach was really good. He appeared calm on the pitch at the beginning and he was able to recognize immediatly a foul after only 20 seconds. Then, just two minutes later, he had to show the first card: totally correct, Ghana player committed foul on the opponent when the ball was already away. Very good decision, Bennett had the match under control. Player respected his decision. At 20', the second card of the match was for a Guinea player who disturbed a free kick, standing in front of the opponent. It was right and a stupid card.

Assistants and disallowed goal
Assistants were almost perfect: in first half Siwela had 2 calls to do and both were correct. Furthermore, the most important call was the disallowed Guinea goal at 25'. Yeo saw well: offside. Perfect. At the end of the match, during the additional time, Yeo raised the flag, reporting a foul that was the last card of the match. Correct decision, in this situation, Bennett was far.

Bah double yellow and red
Bah got the first card after 4 minutes in second half, it was correct, a foul without any chance to reach the ball. Then, the second cards a few minutes later was for a similar foul. I think it was a correct sending off.

Penalty?
In first half, at 39', Ghana complained for a penalty. It is a difficult situation to read. The player moved the ball forward, then he clashed against the opponent. Or maybe was the opponent to obstruct him? I would choose the first explanation. To give a penalty, I think we have to see a clear foul. However, Bennett was far and he decided to not whistle.

Match difficulty and final thoughts
It was not a so difficult match, but neither a easy one. The coefficient could be 7. Bennett is a good referee, but he can improve. In my opinion, he has to stay closer to actions, observing more carefully what is happening on the pitch. Basically, he has a good foul detection and he gives the right cards. Maybe we will see him in a knocout stage match. It's early to talk about the final.
