2022 World Cup Potential Referees List
« on: Sun 01 Mar 2020 04:36 »
Not sure if this is already posted.

http://refereeingworld.blogspot.com/2020/02/prospective-referees-for-fifa-world-cup_25.html

Not sure how accurate this list is.

If it is correct then the UEFA refs look fairly inexperienced compared to the last 3 or 4 editions of the World Cup. If it is correct then the referees are going to have a busy 2 years coming up.

Soon as I saw that list I was in agreement with the above post regarding the inexperience amongst the UEFA ranks,  Also Treimanis Jovanic and Eckberg would be surprise inclusions

Looking down the list, I donít see many names I recognise from other confederations as well as the inexperienced UEFA list. Means a lot of refs will attend their first World Cup!

I would imagine the Iranian Faghani will feature prominently again; also the Gambian Gassama who I saw mucking up a game big time as long ago as the 2012 Olympics.

Not sure he will be allowed to. He no longer officiates in Iran, he joined the A league in Australia in September. Anyone else who has moved countries has not been allowed to continue on the FIFA list (Clatts & Gillett spring to mind) so I'd be surprised if he was allowed to continue to represent Iran as a FIFA official.

Does irmatov still referee?

It's four and a half years between the World Cups so I guess not that surprising for there to be a lot of change. It's still almost three years away too so a lot of experience can be built up in that time.

We are probably influenced by hindsight to some extent. Back in 2011, the likes of Proenca, Cakir, Brych, Rizolli, Mazic, Kuipers, Eriksson hadn't refereed at a World Cup or Euros and all were at the 2014 World Cup. Of course, Cakir/Rizolli did a semi-final/final at their first World Cup as did Kassai/Webb at theirs in 2010.

Most of us probably weren't especially aware of the likes of Pitana, Ricci and Geiger three years before the 2014 World Cup either.

No. He was appointed as Vice president or similar of the Uzbekistan FA last summer. He's leading reforms there now.

The Iranian FA have maintained his as FIFA ref and he has taken charge of internationals since he took A league games. I would guess he may not be appointed to Australia's matches

Thanks. Difficult to comment too much on him because I only really saw him every few years but he seemed another who peaked very early on. Excellent at the 2010 World Cup and probably unlucky not to do the final, but then it never quite seemed to happen for him after in the major tournaments.

Feghani is representing Iran although living in Australia. He is being appointed to AFC games.
My be;lief is that he is a shoe-in to go.
Interestingly though at the recent AFC U23 tournament he did not get any knockout games due to, I am led to believe,  geo-political reasons

My thoughts are that the difference is that Clattenberg and Gillett moved confederations, Faghani hasn't.

Good point! I hope he does carry on, decent ref more often than not.

Is Willie Collum that out of favour?

I don't even see him going to the Euros this summer (when are we expecting that list of officials to be announced?)

Definitely after the Play-OFF matches.
