EURO 2012 : Portuguese referee to handle Spain v Italy final

Pedro Proenca of Portugal will referee the Spain vs Italy Euro 2012 final in Kiev, Ukraine on Sunday.

Proenca has refereed both of the Euro 2012 finalists in his three matches in Poland and Ukraine.

He handled Spain's 4-0 victory over Ireland in the group stage, and also controlled Italy's quarterfinals win on penalties against England after a 0-0 draw.

Proenca also refereed Sweden's 2-0 win against France and he hasn't shown a red card or awarded a penalty at Euro 2012.

Proenca is now arguably UEFA's top ranked referee as he was also in charge of this years Champions League final as well. Chelsea beat Bayern Munich in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw.
