Uzbek referee Ravshan Irmatov has been confirmed as the referee for Italy's game against Brazil in the Confederations Cup on Saturday.
The Azzurri face the hosts in Salvador looking for the three points that will see them top Group A.
And they will do so with the 35-year-old in charge for his first game of the tournament.
Irmatov has been a FIFA referee since 2003, with perhaps his most high-profile match being the World Cup semi-final in 2010 between Netherlands and Uruguay.
