Proenca will ref Italy-Spain

Sunday’s European Championship Final between Italy and Spain will be refereed by Pedro Proenca, UEFA have confirmed.

The Portuguese official, just 41, is handed the game less than two months after taking charge of the Chelsea-Bayern Munich Champions League Final tie.

Euro 2012 is Proenca’s first major international competition and was the man with the whistle in Italy’s quarter-final shoot-out win over England.

Proenca was also handed Spain’s 4-0 win over the Republic of Ireland and Sweden’s 2-0 triumph versus France earlier in the tournament.
