For Switzerland vs. Cameroon's Group G Match, Who Is The Referee?

(CTN News) – On Thursday, Switzerland and Cameroon begin Group G competition at the World Cup. The match will be played at Al-Janoub Stadium in Al-Wakrah. It begins at 5 a.m. Eastern Time and airs on Fox Sports 1.

Draft Kings Sportsbook has Switzerland as a -135 favorite, while Cameroon is a +425 underdog. The odds for a draw are +265 percent.

In both World Cups, Switzerland advanced to the knockout stage before exiting in the Round of 16. Cameroon failed to qualify four years ago and did not win a match in the group stage in 2014 and 2010. It was in 1990 that they reached the quarterfinals of the knockout stage for the first time.

An Argentinian crew will lead this match, with referee Facundo Tello in charge. Refereeing this competition is his first major international competition.

Despite his extensive experience at Argentina’s highest levels of play, his international experience is primarily as a fourth official.

In addition to the 2021 Copa América, he has served as a fourth official at the qualifying level for the CONMEBOL World Cup. He also served at the Arab Cup, and at the Arab Football Championship.

In Argentina’s Champions Trophy Final between Boca Juniors and Racing Club on November 6, he handed out ten red cards. During this summer’s World Cup, it’s unlikely we’ll see the kind of melee that led to ten red cards.

The total cards for Thursday’s match are set at 4.5. The under is -155, while the over is +115. There Switzerland will be the following officials officiating the match for Tello, with their roles and nationalities listed below (h/t Law 5 – The Referee):

  • Ezequiel Brailovsky (ARG) is Assistant Referee 1.

  • 2nd Assistant Referee: Gabriel Chade (ARG)

  • The fourth official is Said Martinez (HON).

  • A reserve assistant referee is Walter Lopez (HON).

  • ARG Video Assistant Referee: Mauro Vigliano

  • Video Assistant Referee: Fernando Guerrero (MEX).

  • Referee: Pau Cebrián Devis (ESP), offside video assistant

  • Assistant Video Referee: Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea (ESP)

  • Referee on standby: Nicolas Taran (URU).

Why is Switzerland No 1 country?

Switzerland’s reputation for a great quality of life is part of the reason it tops the 2022 Best Countries rankings, which this year surveyed more than 17,000 global citizens to gather perceptions about 85 nations. The mountainous central European country snagged the No.
