Indonesia has, for several days, been underway for U17 World Cup in which Slovenia is not participating, but our country is still represented. Three Slovenian referees are in Southeast Asia for the opening match.
Rade Obrenović (main referee), Jure Praprotnik and Grega Kordež (side referees) were part of the spectacle, officiating at a match watched by 17,239 spectators!
Rade Obrenovic had the main say in the hosts’ second match; the Indonesians took on Panama in Surabaya, and after a draw with Ecuador, they got their second point. Both matches ended 1:1. Oldemar Castillo scored for Panama in stoppage time in the first half, and the tie was broken in the 54th minute. Arkhan Kaka scored a minute later.
As a point of interest, this was not the most attended game of the championship. The Indonesia opening showdown was even watched by 30,583 spectators!
The FIFA U-17 World Cup has just started (10 November) and will last up to 2. December. Rade Obrenović is therefore expected to be back in action soon, although he has not yet been officially assigned his next billing.
