Alireza Faghani to Officiate South Korea’s Friendlies
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian international referee Alireza Faghani has been invited to South Korea to officiate the country’s two friendly matches against Uruguay and Panama.
South Korea will face Uruguay on October 12 and meet Panama four days later in another friendly.
Faghani was supposed to officiate a friendly match between Japan and Chile, scheduled for September 7 at the Sapporo Stadium but the match was canceled due to an earthquake in Japan.
Faghani officiated the third-place match between Belgium and England in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
In his impressive career, the 40-year-old has officiated finals of the 2014 AFC Champions League, 2015 AFC Asian Cup, 2015 FIFA Club World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Football Tournament.
