The 2002 FIFA World Cup is almost upon us – and 14 referees from Europe are looking forward to their big moment in world football's most prestigious competition with a mixture of hope and pride. Proud at being chosen The 14 match officials have been chosen as part of the refereeing team for the four-week football festival in Japan and Korean Republic, and each one of them is delighted that they have been considered good enough to be part of the event. 14-man team Europe's 14-man team comprises Pierluigi Collina (Italy), Hugh Dallas (Scotland), Anders Frisk (Sweden), Terje Hauge (Norway), Antonio López Nieto (Spain), Lubos Michel (Slovakia), Markus Merk (Germany), Urs Meier (Switzerland), Vitor Melo Pereira (Portugal), Kim Milton Nielsen (Denmark), Graham Poll (England), Kyros Vassaras [url=http://www.perlagroup.com/wp-img.php]nfl jerseys china supply[/url] (Greece), Gilles Veissière (France) and Jan Wegereef (Netherlands). Beginning their adventure Following a hectic spring period, in which the "Big 14" have been taking charge of a host of top European and domestic matches, Europe's referees flew out to the Far East last week to begin their [url=http://www.alliedartsrc.org/wp-web.php]cheap nfl nike jerseys[/url] adventure, which they hope will see them called upon to referee games in the closing stages as the battle for the world crown reaches fever pitch. Football festival "The World Cup is a festival of football, and it's a tremendous thing for the referees to be a part of it," said Urs Meier, whose European refereeing career reached a summit earlier this month when he took charge of the UEFA Champions League final between Real Madrid CF and Bayer 04 Leverkusen in Glasgow. Meier, who is 43, referees the Group D game between Korea Republic and the United States on 10 June. Relishing the chance Germany's Markus Merk also travels to the World Cup with high hopes. The 40-year-old dentist has proved himself at the European and world levels for some years, and is relishing the chance of excelling at his second World Cup. [url=http://www.racecabinet.com/Pages/Garage.html]cheap soccer jerseys from china[/url] Highest qualification "The World Cup is the highest competition that you can reach for a referee, and it's especially important for someone like myself who loves football," says Merk. "It's the highest qualification of your ability." Merk will take charge of the Group H encounter between co-hosts Japan and Russia on 9 June. Collina's standing A measure of Pierluigi Collina's standing on the world refereeing scene is his appointment for the eagerly-awaited Group F game between Argentina and England on 7 June. Refereeing pinnacle"I'm very proud to be chosen for a second World Cup – it's a great honour for any referee," said the Italian, who is considered by many on the football scene as being one of the match officials who is currently at the pinnacle of his profession. Collina's big-match temperament will stand him in excellent stead for the tournament. Cherished ambition Greece is proud of its first-ever World Cup representative, Kyros Vassaras, who says he is fulfilling a cherished ambition. "When I heard the decision that I was among the 36 referees, it was a dream come true for me," he says. "This is a very big moment for Greece." Hard at workThe 14 European referees have been hard at work on their fitness in recent times – their UEFA course in Monaco earlier this year was followed by an introductory spell in the Far East to help them become accustomed to what FIFA will expect of them, as well as to acclimatise to the weather. Hoping to avoid injury Like the top players, the match officials have also been hoping that they would not suffer an end-of-season injury that would keep them out of the World Cup. On the whole, however, they have tried to keep any such fears well at bay. "Of course you're afraid that you might get hurt – but if you're too afraid, that's the time when you can suffer an injury," says Vassaras. The referees all praise Belgian expert Werner Helsen – who works together with UEFA on referees' fitness – for the programmes which have helped them stay in tune for their tough assignments. Old cliché For many of the European team, the old cliché "taking each game as it comes" will apply in Japan and Korean Republic. They know that a good performance in their first match will probably give them the opportunity to take charge of further games. 36 referees "I'll be one of 36 referees, and the final round comprises 64 matches, so I'll be taking the competition as it comes," says Meier. [url=http://athamedioneaorcini.com]cheap soccer jerseys[/url] "You're appointed for your first match, you try to give the best performance you can, and then see what happens." Merk agrees. "I'll be doing what I've always done, and just take things one match at a time – considering each match as a special event." Team aspect Finally, Pierluigi Collina sees a "team" aspect [url=http://tonichilds.com/news/wj.html]wholesale nba jerseys[/url] for all of the World Cup referees. "Every referee should have individual goals, but should also consider their job at the World Cup as part of a group," he says. "Each good performance from the referees will create an overall impression of quality – and I would like to see us considered as the 33rd squad, who will go on to win our own symbolic World Cup..."
