At 39, Danny Makkelie is one of the more experienced referees in Europe’s top leagues. The full-time police officer has been a FIFA referee since 2011 and has officiated 40 Champions League games. Today’s duel between Germany and Spain is nevertheless a first for the referee, as it is his first World Cup game.

He attracted attention with a generous line, but was dependent on the VAR for both penalty decisions. Ex-DFB referee Manuel Gräfe recently called Makkelie via Twitter as “one of the greatest refereeing talents in Europe”.
Criticism, on the other hand, rained down on last year’s European Championships after he helped England into the final with a controversial penalty against Denmark in the semi-finals. Referee legend Urs Meier also attested to him making a wrong decision at the time in an interview with GOAL and SPOX but forgiving words.
“It was his fourth game at the European Championship. Four times he whistled excellently and everyone reduced his performance to just this one scene,” Meyer regretted: “Makkelie can drive home proud, but this one scene will rankle him and she will haunt him too. But he has to go through with it.”
