Small description of the match (extra-ordinary incidents etc.): The last matchday of Group A in this FIFA Confederations Cup 2013. The match was played in Belo Horizonte at Estdio Mineiro, in front of an attendance of 52,690. Both teams were already eliminated from the tournament, having lost all the previous matches. So, a match without a real interest, but at the end it was well played by both teams. The referee appointed was Felix Brych from Germany, at his first game in this tournament. Howard Webb worked as fourth official. The match in its progress presented several interesting situation, being anyway not that intensive and difficult for the referee.

Crucial Decisions (refer to penalty kicks, sending-off situations etc.) Minute and Description of the Scene / Assessment of the referees decision Penalty appeal by Mexico. After a shot by Hernandez (MEX), Kurihara (MEX) 49 hits the ball with his hand in area. The decision to consider it as unintentional is correct because the arms of the defender are close to body. Penalty whistled in favor of Mexico. Hernandez (MEX) falls down in area after a soft contact with the opponent. A hand on the shoulder made him fall down while 90+1 running. The call must be evaluated as soft, anyway not a clear mistake, still acceptable.

Basic Observations (refer to the general application of the LotG, highlight the referees tactical approach, personality, match control, management of the teams and players, teamwork etc.). Please deploy short but precise and detailed sentences! Positive Points 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Control of the game and communication with players. Alertness in evaluating crucial situations in penalty area (see 49 in the grid above) Waiting prior to whistle, in order to be totally sure and in case, to give a possible advantage. Attention when players took free kicks. He ordered often to repeat them because the ball was moving. Even in the penalty situation, he was able to notice that the ball was in a wrong position. Management of added time: 5 minutes in second half were totally appropriate.

Points for Improvement 1. 2. 3. Excessive usage of the whistle, in calling players. The penalty was a too soft call, still acceptable, but it wasnt consistent with the other fouls on the middle of the pitch. He decided to give only two YC in a mandatory situations, but the management can be improved. For this reason the mark is 8,2. Anyway, overall still a good performance.

Further observations (peculiarities of the referee revealing his character) Felix Brych had overall a lenient style in this match, preferring to whistle without cards. He decided to give a card in first half for a tackle, then another at the end of second half for wasting of time by Mexican keeper (correct). Overall, the foul detection was good, but the card management can be improved. Again, we can underline that the penalty call was too soft. Brych should find more consistency under this aspect. It was anyway a difficult situation to evaluate and he was a bit far from the play.
