England at the World Cup Final

image The team might have been sent home in disgrace but England will still have a representative at the World Cup final after Fifa confirmed that Howard Webb is to referee Sunday's showpiece event between Holland and Spain.

Webb will become the first official to oversee both the Champions League final and the World Cup final in the same season. The 38-year-old Yorkshireman, who is currently on a five-year break from South Yorkshire police where he serves as a sergeant, will be assisted by Darren Cann and Michael Mullarkey.

PS Is it purely by chance that his shirt is red with a yellow stripe?
