Proenca to referee Euro 2012 final

Portuguese referee Pedro Proenca will take charge of the Euro 2012 final between Spain and Italy in Kiev on Sunday, UEFA has announced.

Spain have already come across Proenca in the tournament as he was the man in the middle for their 4-0 Group C victory over the Republic of Ireland, and the 41-year-old already has big-game experience this season having refereed the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Chelsea in May.

Last season Proenca was involved in two European games involving Spanish sides, refereeing the Manchester City-Villarreal Champions League clash and the Europa League fixture between Schalke 04 and Athletic Bilbao.
