Euro 2016: AR Wilczek replaced by Mokrusch

UEFA has made a third change in the refereeing team for Euro 2016. Czech assistant referee Martin Wilczek, 46, was initially one of the oldest match officials selected for this European Championship, along with Michael Mullarkey (England). At the referee seminar held in France, Wilczek (photo) failed the fitness test and UEFA replaced him with the standby AR Tomas Mokrusch. Martin Wilczek was one of four assistants that accompanied referee Pavel Kralovec in their preparation for Euro 2016. The other assistant referee is Slovak Roman Slysko, while the additional assistant referees are Czech Michal Patak and Petr Ardeleanu.
Kralovec will be the first Czech referee appointed to the European Championship since Vaclav Krondl in 1996. The last Czech representative in the men's top event was assistant referee Evzen Amler at the FIFA World Cup 2002, while Dagmar Damkova refereed the 2008 Olympic final, UEFA Women's Euro 2009 final and 2011 UEFA Women's Champions League final.
