Oliver named as Chile 2015 final referee

English referee Michael Oliver and his compatriot assistant referees Stuart Burt and Gary Beswick will be joined by Costa Rican fourth official Ricardo Montero as the team of officials for the FIFA U-17 World Cup Chile 2015 final between Mali and Nigeria in Vina Del Mar on Sunday 8 November.

Oliver has been a FIFA listed international referee since 2012, and has been an official in the English Premier League since 2010, taking charge of his first game aged 25, which made him the youngest ever Premier League referee.

The play-off for third place between Belgium and Mexico, earlier the same day, will see a Qatari team take charge, with Abdulrahman Al Jassim joined by assistants Taleb Al Marri and Saoud Almaqaleh, while New Zealander Nick Waldron will be the fourth official.​​
