UPL referee Mark Clattenburg will officiate at the Euro 2016 final

Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg will take charge of Sunday’s Euro 2016 final between France and Portugal.

Clattenburg, who has the requisite credentials to officiate at the highest level of football, will officiate at the finals in the Stade de France six weeks after refereeing Real Madrid’s Champions League final win over Atletico Madrid in Milan, Italy.

In the Euro 2016 hosts France beat Germany 2-0 on Thursday to reach the final and will face Portugal who beat Wales with the same score line.

Clattenburg has officiated in three games at the finals to date, including a 2-2 draw between Croatia and the Czech Republic which he briefly halted due to trouble in the stands.

He was also in charge for Belgium’s group-stage defeat to Italy and Poland’s penalty shoot-out win over Switzerland in the last 16.

He has so far shown 12 yellow cards and is yet to send off a player in this tourney.

Clattenburg will be joined by assistant referees Simon Beck and Jake Collin and additional assistants Anthony Taylor and Andre Marriner.
