Euro 2024: French referee to take charge of England v Spain

35-year-old has already officiated a Spain game in the tournament


French referee Francois Letexier has been appointed to officiate the Euro 2024 Final between England and Spain in Berlin on Sunday night.

The 35-year-old has been an international referee since 2017 and has been in the middle for 65 UEFA matches – including three at this tournament.

He has already refereed Spain, taking charge of their last-16 win over Georgia, in which he booked one player from either side, La Roja captain Alvaro Morata and Georgian substitute Zuriko Davitashvili.

He brandished four yellow cards – two to either side – as he took charge of Denmark’s goalless draw with Serbia in Group C and the same number in the hotly-contested Group B clash between Croatia and Albania, which ended 2-2.

He was also fourth-official for the opening match of the tournament which saw hosts Germany thrash Scotland 5-1.

Last season, Letexier took charge of 10 matches in the UEFA Champions League and Europa League and was the fourth official at the 2024 UEFA Champions League final between Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid at Wembley last month.

He also took charge of the 2023 UEFA Super Cup between Man City and Sevilla in Piraeus, Greece.

Letexier will be assisted by compatriots Cyril Mugnier and Mehdi Rahmouni, while Szymon Marciniak of Poland will be fourth official.

The VAR role has been assigned to Jerome Brisard of France.
