How are the referees at this World Cup?

  Like previous World Cups, Qatar World Cup referees are also quite eye-catching. Of course, there are good and bad sides to this.
  In the ups and downs of the final, the Polish referee Maziniak’s law enforcement can be called a classic.
  Before this game entered the penalty shootout stage, the two sides scored 6 goals, 3 of which were penalties. The number is actually a bit surprising. But if you look back at the game, there is no problem with Mazignak’s call, especially in the 21st minute of the game, Argentine forward Di Maria broke through to the French penalty area and was tripped by French defender Dembele. Ke decisively called a penalty kick.
  If football rules are strictly followed, this ball Dembele did cause Di Maria’s body to fall to the ground, and a penalty kick could be awarded. However, in actual games, how to punish this kind of foul with vague boundaries often requires the referee to grasp the scale. Maybe many referees will signal the game to continue.
  In the 87th minute of the game, Thuram Jr. of the French team broke into the Argentine penalty area and fell down. Not only did Mazignak not give a penalty, but he gave Thuram Jr. a yellow card. Through the slow-motion playback, it is indeed possible to see that Thuram, after passing the opponent’s defender, deliberately stretched his right leg towards the opponent and tripped himself, intending to cheat a penalty kick. It should be received a yellow card.
  Whether it was a penalty kick or a yellow card for Thuram Jr., the video referee team did not raise any objections to Maziniak’s decision. This actually shows a problem, even if there is technical assistance, the most important thing is the referee. In fact, in this game, there was almost no phenomenon that the referee changed the judgment due to the reminder from the video referee team. The two teams played fiercely, but there was no conflict. This fully demonstrates the referee’s level and control ability of Maziniak.
  There are those who have good field control ability, and naturally there are those who have poor field control ability. For example, in the eight-to-four match between Argentina and the Netherlands, the players on both sides were very impatient, and the conflicts continued, even affecting the Dutch bench. The referee Laos from Spain probably wanted to use a yellow card warning to control the atmosphere on the field. He showed a total of 18 yellow cards and 1 red card to the players and coaches.
  The refereeing of Laos made the Argentine furious. Messi and goalkeeper Martinez lashed out at him, and Martinez even called him “the worst referee in the World Cup. We hope he will not appear on the pitch again”. Sure enough, FIFA subsequently announced that Laos would no longer referee the following games. In fact, Laos is a famous post in La Liga, and he has repeatedly enforced the focus of the battle between Real Madrid and Barcelona. But this time, he not only failed to control the scene, but also brought a “stain” to his career.
  In the eight-to-four match between England and France, referee Sampaio from Brazil caused dissatisfaction among fans on both sides. British players and fans are even more dissatisfied with him. Some British fans even called him a “French fan”. However, some Brazilian football experts believe that Sampaio’s law enforcement is substandard because he has always been strict before, but this World Cup in Qatar requires flexibility in some aspects, so he has not adapted for a while.
  Of course, when it comes to the refereeing problem in this World Cup, there is a breakthrough that cannot be ignored, that is, in the last round of the group match between Germany and Costa Rica, the referee and assistant referee were both female referees for the first time. . Stephanie Frappa from France, who has served as the referee in the European Champions Cup, served as the referee, and Barker from Brazil and Diaz from Mexico served as assistant referees.
  Law enforcement in this game was not difficult, and there were not many fouls in the audience, but the three female referees made history. Although the performance of the assistant referee was a bit flawed, public opinion affirmed the performance of the referee Flapa. It is believed that more and more female referees will “enforce” the Men’s Football World Cup in the future.
