FIFA have announced the six officiating teams appointed to next month’s Club World Cup finals in Morrocco.
Four of the match official trios selected were involved at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, including the only European representative – Portugal’s Pedro Proenca.
44-year-old Noumandiez Doue, of the Ivory Coast, is the oldest referee while the youngest, 10 years his junior, is Guatemala’s Walter Lopez.
The tournament, held between 10 and 20 December, features seven champions of each of the continental confederations with Champions League holders Real Madrid set to compete for only the second time in the competition’s 11-year history.
Australia’s Benjamin Williams has also been chosen along with Wilmar Roldan (Colombia) and Norbert Hauata of Tahiti.
Williams oversaw four games at the summer tournament in Brazil while Roldan was sent packing after the group stages and Hauata was only called upon as an extra official.
It could be a final swansong for Proenca – the 2012 Champions League final and Euro 2012 final referee – having acclaimed many high-profile achievements during his Uefa and Fifa officiating career.
Last year’s final – in which Bayern Munich beat Morrocan side Raja Casablanca 2-0 – was officiated by Brazilian whistler Sandro Ricci.
