UEFA appoints Referee for Match between BiH and Northern Ireland

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) has appointed arbiters for the matches between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Northern Ireland in the League of Nations.

The main referee of the match that will take place on Monday will be Finnish Mattias Gestranius, and he will be assisted by Jan-Peter Aravirt and Mikko Alakare.

Additional referees behind the goals are also from Finland, and they are Antti Munukka and Dennis Antamo, while fifth referee is Jukka Honkanen.

A forty-years old Gestranius has been a FIFA arbiter since 2009, and is known to have a very harsh criterion, easily giving cards.

BiH national team player had been training in Training Center Butmir after their return from Turkey.

All were training except Miralem Pjanic and Ognjen Vranjes. Pjanic was training in gym while working on fitness, while Vranjes was spared because of tiredness.

The match will take place on Monday at Grbavica Stadium in Sarajevo at 20:45 o’clock.
