European football's governing body UEFA have called on the 41-year-old's experience for the championship decider at the Stade de France.

A former electrician, Clattenburg became a professional referee in 2007.

He has already overseen three matches at the tournament - the first round games between Belgium v Italy, and the Czech Republic v Croatia, and the last-16 clash between Switzerland v Poland.

In May, Clattenburg refereed the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. He becomes only the second referee after Pedro Proenca in 2012 to officiate at both the Champions League and European championships finals.

On Sunday he will be assisted by two English assistants, Simon Beck and Jake Collin.
