PARIS, June 15. /TASS/. A 2016 UEFA Euro Cup group stage match between Switzerland and Romania on Wednesday ended with a 1-1 draw.
The Group A game was held in Paris at the Parc des Princes stadium.
Romania’s Bogdan Stancu scored in the 18th minute from a penalty shot. Switzerland’s Admir Mehmedi shot a goal in the 57th minute.
The match between Romania and Switzerland in the French capital was served by a main referee from Russia, Sergey Karasev.
Last December UEFA announced a list of 16 main referees selected to take charge of 51 matches of this summer’s main football tournament in Europe. Russia’s Karasev was included in the list.
The last time a Russian specialist worked as a main referee at a large-scale international football championship was in 2006, when Valentin Ivanov managed matches of the FIFA World Cup in Germany.
Besides main referee Karasev, the other match officials from Russia managing the matches of the 2016 Euro Cup are: Anton Averyanov, Tikhon Kalugin, Nikolai Golubev (all assistant referees), Sergey Lapochkin and Sergey Ivanov (both additional assistant referees).
In the next match, Switzerland will play France June 19 in Lille, while Romania will on the same day play Albania in Lyon. After two matches, the Swiss team has 4 points, Romania has 1 point. France (3) and Albania (0) have each held one game and will play each other later Wednesday.
