France after extra time :lol:

But earlier in the match Belgium was leading 6-3. After 90 minutes it was 6-6 and then there was only one goal during ET that made France win :lol:

Sounds legit. I've put my monthly salary on it. Thanks for the tip.

@MHSN One of the main Dutch referees has said he would put his money on Faghani :IRI to be chosen as referee for the final :p

 

Would be the first ever Asian :)

well yeah Iranian media talk about it everyday specially when Cakir is assigned for one of the semifinals. but I'm not sure yet. that would be nice to have some Iranians in the final. since Iran will never play in a World Cup final. :d

 

btw he is not a nobody, he was in Olympic final. AFC Asian Cup final. AFC champions league final and FIFA World Club Cup final. almost every possible final for an Asian referee. and he didn't have to use VAR so far so I guess that won't be a wrong decision but still who knows

He sounds like the Asian version of Björn Kuipers then, including the Dutch media talking a lot about his chances :p (and having had basically all European finals)

I just don't see an European referee in the final here. The last two Wc finals were given to UEFA refs already and now we have nothing but UEFA teams in the semis and the tournament itself is held in Europe. Just too much Europe involved. Btw, the last time an UEFA referee was given the WC final on European soil was 1974.

 

Faghani seems like the safest bet for the final. It would have probably been Irmatov before but he had a disappointing performance in the group stage and was send home early.

And since then, only 4 World Cups have been held in Europe, so that is a sample that says nothing :p (not saying I expect a European in the final)

Outside of 1986 all non-UEFA based World Cup finals were given to UEFA refs though. I mean you can see the pattern when you ditch the sample and look at the big picture.

In my mind, this match should have been the final. Whichever team wins the CRO-ENG match is not really up to the task of being World Champion, in my opinion.
