Unlike most referees in the 2018 World Cup, Sandro Ricci did not lace up in the special-edition Adidas Copa Mundial but in the lower-tier Adidas Predator 18.3 Tango boots. It is a remarkable choice for a referee.


The Adidas Predator 18.3 indoor football boots retail at just 80 GBP. They feature a coated mesh upper and a non-rubber indoor outsole.
