World Cup Referees: Saturday, June 21
Saturday’s games will feature two repeat referees and one we have only seen as a fourth official: New Zealand’s dreamy Peter O’Leary.
Argentina and Iran have Milorad Mazic. The Serb is very well thought-of around FIFA, though I thought his original outing (Germany v. Portugal) was rather hit or miss.
One of the best referees I’ve seen in the tournament so far – Sandro Ricci (above) of Brazil – takes Germany v. Ghana.
