The Fifa has reduced the referee squad in South Africa from 29 to 19 referees. Here’s the list with referees who are still in the tournament (and between brackets who are sent home).
Update: Only 10 referees are still eligible for the final.
(Mohd Salleh is sent home before QF; Al Ghamdi before semi-finals)
(Coulibaly is sent home before QF; Maillet before semi-finals)
(Aguilar is sent home before QF; Batres before semi-finals)
(Vazquez and Larrionda are sent home before QF; Baldassi and Simon before semi-finals)
No referee any more
(O’Learry is sent home before QF; Hester before semi-finals)
(Busacca, Rosetti, Lannoy and Hansson are sent home before QF; Stark, Undiano and Benquerenca before semi-finals)
Do you agree that Busacca has to fly back to Switzerland? What’s your opinion of the new Fifa list? And who’s your favourite to officiate in the final?
