Ravshan Irmatov to referee the World Cup match between Spain and Morocco

Uzbekistan’s Ravshan Irmatov has been appointed as a referee for the 2018 World Cup group stage match between Spain and Morocco will take place at the Kaliningrad Stadium on June 25.

Five-time Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Referee of the Year winner Ravshan Irmatov set a new milestone in the Argentine v Croatia game, becoming the first referee to officiate ten World Cup matches as he renewed his own record in World Cup matches on Thursday.

He took charge of a World Cup fixture for the first time during the Opening Match of the 2010 World Cup between hosts South Africa and Mexico. Four more games at that edition followed, including the semi-final between the Netherlands and Uruguay, before Irmatov added another four to his total at Brazil 2014.
