Cuneyt Cakir has been appointed for Germany-Romania, meaning UEFA has not suspended him after controversy in Milan-Atletico Madrid.
Last week, the Turkish referee was in the spotlight after awarding Atletico Madrid a non-existent penalty in the final minutes of their Champions League clash with Milan.
It all happened after that Cakir had shown Milan midfielder Franck Kessié two yellow cards in the opening 30 minutes of the game at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
The Rossoneri submitted a formal complaint to UEFA about the performance of the match official.
Many, including former Serie A referee Gianluca Paparesta, thought UEFA would have suspended the Turkish official.
However, the 44-year-old has been appointed for the World Cup qualifying match between Germany and Romania on Friday, meaning Europe football’s governing body hasn’t taken any action against the match official.
However, UEFA suspended VAR referee Abdulkadir Bitigen who was replaced by his compatriot Huseyin Gocek. Bitigen was considered by UEFA as the main responsible for the mistake at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
