The Gunners goalkeeper, along with team-mates Olivier Giroud and Nacho Monreal, try their hand at officiating and are not afraid to dish out the cards

Petr Cech, Olivier Giroud and Nacho Monreal got a first-hand experience of what it's like to be a referee when they became match officials for the day.

More accustomed to arguing against decisions than actively making them, the Gunners trio took charge of an amateur match and weren't shy in making big calls and dishing out cards.

Giroud starts off by awarding a questionable penalty, that's subsequently skied miles over the bar, while Monreal awards a free-kick for a late challenge that leads to a superb goal from the resulting set-piece.

Czech Republic goalkeeper Cech, meanwhile, showed his refereeing nous as he allowed an advantage that saw a goal scored soon after, while he dished out a red card for a deliberate handball on the goalline.
