UEFA EURO 2008 QUALIFIERS :
Bulgaria - Netherlands, 1 - 1. Vassil Levski, Sofia, Bulgaria, 2006-10-07

Different skills were needed last night by the players as well as the referee. Different from what most of them are used to since most Dutch players and quite a few Bulgarians are used to state of the art fields and grass technology and have practiced their tricks and passes and slidings on those fields, so they were in for a tough game in what must have felt like a pool.

used
On a field like this a referee has to be able to see what happened when three players roll over each other slithering and sliding. Whether it was a matter of skill or simply not knowing what to do, Øvrebø gave most sitautions the benefit of the doubt. He hardly used his whistle, even dropped it once when he did need it.

less
Mayby he should have used his whistle even less often: twice he judged a dive by Petrov as a foul and when Dutch striker Van Persie wringled himself out of Petrov's arms and scored, Øvrebø saw a foul. It wasn't a cancelled goal, he whistled before Van Persie shot, but it was an important moment where his judgement was wrong.

more
I wonder if Tom Henning Øvrebø would have been able to control these two teams if the field had been good. The Bulgarians are not known for their fair play and the Dutch proved to be easily agitated during the 2006 World Cup finals. Øvrebø didn't see Petrov hit Van Persie in the face (his assistant should have seen it) for instance and there was a short little fight. Both things could have ended in mayhem if the players had had the energy for it. Instead they were too busy keeping their heads above the water.

the match
Van Persie against ten guys called Petrov (and one Brazilian). Van Persie the much better player tried hard but his skills were useless on a field like this and Petrov did a very smart thing: he counter-attacked with a left footed player from the right.
