The Slovenian referee Slavko Vincic will direct the quarter-final of Euro 2020 between Belgium and Italy. His name – recalls La Gazzetta dello Sport – is linked to an unfortunate event off the pitch dating back to a year ago when, in May 2020, he was arrested during a police raid to clear up a drug and weapons ring in a farmhouse in Bosnia. “I’m here by chance,” he swore as he was arrested, and that was no excuse. He had simply accepted an invitation to a business lunch and was there with his wife: only there were people dealing with other “business” and he had also summoned a dozen prostitutes. Cleared immediately, Vincic can now remember that experience with the smile of someone who escaped a nasty legal misunderstanding. He is in the third direction of Italy, so far only successes: 2-0 to Albania (2018 World Cup qualifiers) and 2-0 to Bulgaria (March, Qatar 2022 qualifiers). He once led Belgium, in November, in a 4-2 win against Denmark in the Nations League. In this European championship he refereed Spain-Sweden 0-0 and Switzerland-Turkey 3-1.
