FIFA has named Argentinian Nestor Pitana as the referee for Sunday’s World Cup final between France and Croatia.
The 43-year-old officiated the tournament’s opening game between Russia and Saudi Arabia and was in charge for France’s quarterfinal victory over Uruguay, as well as Croatia’s last-16 clash with Denmark.
He is joined by assistant referees Hernan Maidana and Juan Belatti, as well as fourth official Bjorn Kuipers.
France booked its spot in the final in Moscow with a slender win over Belgium, while Croatia edged past England to seal a place in a World Cup final for the first time in its history.
Alireza Faghani of Iran will referee Saturday’s Belgium-England third-place game.
