This incident occurred in the 10th minute of the meeting, when the Petrozavodsk referee jerked on the sidewalk, then suddenly limped heavily and lay down on the grass.
Immediately, the employees of the medical staff of the “bulls” ran out onto the field and helped the referee for almost five minutes. But Dmitry Semenov could no longer continue the meeting in his role.
Instead, he took the flag in his hands and went to the edge of the Moscow substitute referee Roman Safyan.
In turn, instead of him, the injured Semyonov began to perform the duties of a reserve referee.
After that, the judge on the field Artem Lyubimov from St. Petersburg blew his whistle, and the meeting continued.
At the moment, the home team took the lead – 1:0. In the 30th minute, Krasnodar midfielder Eduard Spertsyan converted a penalty.
