Focic to take centre stage
Saturday, 02 August 2003
The officials have been appointed for the final of the UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship, with a referee from Croatia taking charge of Sunday's game at the Alfred Kunze Sportpark in Leipzig.

Tournament experience
Snjezana Focic will be in control of the match between France and Norway. The Croatian was the fourth official at Friday's semi-final between France and England, having previously taken charge of Sweden versus England in Group A and France against Spain in Group B. She was also fourth official at the game between Italy and Sweden.

'Great honour'
"It is a great honour to be awarded the final," Focic told "I know that I am a good referee and I had a feeling that maybe I would take charge of the final but you never know. It's a great opportunity for me and I will do my best to make sure that everything goes smoothly."

Assistants named
The assistants will be Irina Mirt of Romania - who was also assistant referee in the semi-final involving Norway and Sweden, and previously the game between Italy and Sweden – and Finland's Emilia Parviainen, who was assisted at the semi-final between England and France. The fourth official will be Gyöngyi Gaal of Hungary.
