Kuipers got the perfect end to his brilliant career, the crown of action, which he yearned so much for. Oldenzaler made a strong appearance in the quarter-final between Denmark and the Czech Republic in Baku, although there was initially discussion about the corner kick awarded by assistant referee Erwin Zenstra, through which the Danes would take the lead. At first it seemed to be awarded a foul, as Kasper Dolberg seemed to have touched the ball last, but photos from a different camera point of view showed that it was the Czech defender who finally touched the ball. Huge relief to Kuipers and his team, as such a discussion could have had a negative impact on his final chances.
