Superb performance, Iíd say. Let game flow and didnít fall for any soft nonsense. Excellent level of control and great team effort, with excellent onside decision by AR2 for winning goal. A real contender for the big games at end of tournament.

Did really well in this game. Full control - a good appointment, as the more demonstrative, stop-start, grumpy, Italian style of refereeing worked well. This is what the players seemingly want and will accept. Iíd want to wave half of the nonsense away and keep the game the game moving (but could well then get more trouble!). A lot of overreacting to stuff but they were both at it. Argentina back in contention so Fifa will be happy Ö.!

I'll raise this with CAF, @bmb @TheThingFromLewes . This is not expected site behaviour.

I think heís been excellent. Lots of respect from both sides as well

Totally agree. After last night's walk in the park for the Venezuelan (no disrespect to him), this was a game where the referee needed eyes in the back of his head for the full 100 minutes, and I think Mr Orsato did well to keep the game under control throughout.

Faghani could easily get a R16 game and 3rd place playoff to give AFC some extra exposure in World Cup held in Asia.

I think he refereed the 3rd place play off in 2018. I feel  he may go one further this time.

A strange performance from Orsato, he definitely does look fit and if so he shouldnít be officiating.

Sid be surprised if there isnít a red by the end of the game given the physicality, aggression and diving around by both teams, some of which is disgraceful.

Orsato always wears his wedding ring while refereeing.

Just turned it over, is he injured/ taken a knock?  He doesnít seem to be moving as freely as usual.

He just stood at one point and let the ball hit him because he was in the way of play. No attempt to move or jump over the ball. Only hit him at ankle level and I don't think with any real force.

An Istvan cameo in the 2nd half???

Hopefully and preferably in a different kit!

2 very unlikeable teams imo, blade of grass brushes their boot and they are rolling on the floor holding their faces...
