Skomina to referee the Champions League final

Damir Skomina will referee the Champions League final for the first time after being selected to take charge of Tottenham's clash with Liverpool at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on June 1.

The Slovenian was at the centre of a controversial moment when awarding a disputed penalty to Manchester United in the Champions League round of 16 second-leg clash away to Paris St-Germain.

The call, which sealed an away goals success for United, infuriated PSG's Neymar, who was handed a three-game ban after calling the decision 'a disgrace' on social media.

Skomina has officiated in five Champions League and two Europa League matches this season and hasn't brandished a single red card.
