Press delete to eliminate referees

So far 24 teams have returned home as their participation is over in this World Cup, and they will be joined by some referees who are also finished taking part at this event. Five officials in total will say goodbye to Russia after just 19 days of games as they are not needed anymore due to disastrous mistakes.
One of the worst 'man in blue' out of the 5 is definitely Felix Brych from Germany. The 42-year-old did not gave an obvious penalty in Serbia - Switzerland duel, where Aleksandar Mitrovic (Serbia) was in sandwich position (fouled from two players). While the whole world was united by saying the opposite and even wondered why he remained silent, this official did not even bothered to check the 'eagle-eye' video system to be sure (as others are doing on numerous occasions in this championship). Thus for this deliberate error, this lawyer is going home early, although German newspaper Bild already said in advance that is one of the favorites to lead the final match.
The other 4, who will join him to watch the games on television are: Ravshan Irmatov (Uzbekistan), Clement Turpin (France), Szymon Marciniak (Poland) and Javier Aguilar (El Salvador). To conclude: these removals are all insignificant, as the damage has already been done, and the matches cannot be repeated.
