Well in my opinion Neil Doyle is still the best FIFA referee.

Hennessey I would rate above Harvey. Harvey I think has a lot of issues in management and giving a good impression on the pitch in terms of body language and personality. I would be interested to see Hennessey's WCQ game if you have any clips?

And yes that is the same Damien MacGraith.

I like Doyle too, his style is quite elegant, but in general I don't think he had enough to progress past UEFA 2nd personally.

rgfootball doesn't have the game anymore so the best I can do is the Belarus FA's YouTube channel HL.

Penalty - youtu.be/sgWEfSwdJWw?t=94
SYC - youtu.be/sgWEfSwdJWw?t=238

I recalled the SYC being a dive! Shame on me. The SPA assessment was correct in that scene (which you can't fully see here)despite the deep position on the FoP.

The penalty however... to be fair, games between ex-Soviet teams are really difficult, normally a huge amount of rough play and yet rather little dissent which requires a law-enforcer approach from the first whistle, so I wouldn't crucify him or anything especially as a 1990-born.
