Oliver's game is 2nd v 3rd in the group as things stand I believe.  Austria need only a point to definitely qualify and N Macedonia with a remote chance of the play-offs if I understand it properly.

What is the significance, if any, of finishing 1st or 2nd in a group?

Important observer for Marciniak. Not sure Wales will be thrilled with the erratic Aytekin.

I hadn't realised Mr Kapitanis was such an important Observer. However, Michael Oliver has an extremely important and significant Observer.

I ususlly look to edy to gain wisdom about European refereeing matters but I am not sure I have seen him post much lately. I hope all is well with him.

And my opinion, for what it's worth, is that both Taylor and Oliver will go to the Euros.

Wasn't there a situation with FIFA for the last WC when it was alleged FIFA (Collina?) wanted Clattenburg and the FA put Atkinson's name forward.  In the end, both went.

It does seem that UEFA favour Taylor based on recent appointments, but that Oliver has had some backing from FIFA with for example appointments in the U17 and U20 tournaments - including a Final and Semi-Final I recall. Was it Oliver that went to some initial Course for the WC 2022 in Qatar?

Position in group will be the first filter on seeding so worth trying to be top

Ah, yes, of course it was. Yet another memory failure.

 I thought it was longer ago than last year.  We didn't have an English ref. at WC 2018, did we.

No Clatts was the only English ref shortlisted and as as he left before it happened no English ref was chosen.

Královec hasn’t been seen for an eternity it seems, and he has an important observer posted to his game in Plautz. A very good game for Madden in Serbia too.

Gil has shown he is a competent safe official.

Echo those comments completely. I wouldn’t be surprised if Rizzoli is one of the big chiefs of UEFA in the future.

No surprise a big hitter gets the crunch game in Dublin. Brych always the 'go to' official in these cases. Shame there is no VAR for Riley to observe and digest, would help a long way to showing how it's done properly in Europe!!!
