Howard Webb of England, who
showed a record 14 yellow cards in last year's World Cup final
between champions Spain and runners-up Netherlands, was named on
Tuesday on a list of 12 referees for Euro 2012.
The referees will be aided by goal-line assistants in the
finals in Ukraine and Poland following a decision by the
International Football Association Board (IFAB) to continue with
the experiment being used in UEFA's club competitions.
The 12 are: Cuneyt Cakir (Turkey), Jonas Eriksson (Sweden),
Viktor Kassai (Hungary), Bjorn Kuipers (Netherlands), Stephane
Lannoy (France), Pedro Proenca (Portugal), Nicola Rizzoli
(Italy), Damir Skomina (Slovenia), Wolfgang Stark (Germany),
Craig Thomson (Scotland), Carlos Velasco Carballo (Spain) and
Howard Webb (England).
The most notable absentee is Belgium's Frank de Bleeckere,
45, who retired at the weekend.
The Euro 2012 finals will be played from June 8-July 1.
