Sevilla net English ref for EL final

England’s Martin Atkinson will referee the Europa League final between Sevilla and Dnipro, UEFA has announced.

Stephen Child and Mike Mullarkey will be the 44-year-old’s assistants for the May 27 clash, while Anthony Taylor and Andre Marriner will act as the additional goalline officials.

The Czech fourth official Pawel Kralovec is the only non-English member of the team, which is completed by reserve assistant referee Jake Collin.

Atkinson recently refereed the Champions League semi-final first leg between Juventus and Real Madrid and officiated Bayern Munich’s quarter-final second leg tie with Porto.

Meanwhile, Cuneyt Cakir has been selected to take charge of the Champions League final between Barcelona and Juventus in Berlin on June 6.

The 38-year-old Turk has been the man in the middle for 70 European games and has overseen four Champions League matches this term.
