„A great honour“
The Czech referees Cerny / Janousek lead the final game between Finland and Sweden. For the 36-year-old referee it was a special moments, as he explains in the interview with the WFC-reporter before the game.
Petr Cerny, what went through your head when you found out that you were going to lead the finals together with your referee-partner Jiri Janousek?
I was really surprised at first. We did not expect a nomination. It is a great honour for us to be refereeing a WFC final between Sweden and Finland after so many years as referees.
How do you feel before such an important game?
We are nervous, in a positive way. It’s a very special feeling, I can’t really describe it.
The WFC ends with the final. What experiences do you take home with you?
I had a wonderful time. The atmosphere and the people were amazing. I will never forget the power outage in Bern. It was a very special moment when everything went dark all of a sudden in the middle of the game.
