World Cup semifinals 2002: What is Urs Meier actually doing?

Why did you become a referee and not a soccer player? The talent to become a professional was simply lacking. When I was 18, I started training as a referee.

They refereed a total of 883 games. You caused a stir at the 2002 World Cup when you gave Michael Ballack a yellow card in the semifinals, who was then suspended from the final. Is he still mad at you? We get along well. I give Michael Ballack credit for never saying that a yellow card was unfair. I had no other choice, the foul was clear. He's probably more angry with himself: Ballack got his first yellow card in the tournament for complaining.
