Gehad Grisha to take charge of England-Panama World Cup clash
Egyptian referee Gehad Grisha will officiate England’s World Cup clash with Panama in the second round of group G on Sunday.
England are currently second in group G and will look to secure a spot in the round of 16 when they face bottom-placed Panama on Sunday.
The three lions managed to snatch the three points from Tunisia in their World Cup opener, thanks to a last-minute winner from Harry Kane, while Panama suffered a 3-0 defeat against Belgium.
Egypt’s Gehad Grisha has been appointed to referee the game, becoming the fifth Egyptian referee to officiate at a World Cup after Ali Kandil, Mostafa Kamel Mahmoud, Gamal El-Ghandour, and Essam Abdel-Fattah.
Abdel-Fattah was the last Egyptian to referee a World Cup game when he took charge of the Australia and Japan game in the 2006 tournament.
Grisha will be assisted by Morocco’s Redouane Achik, Sudan’s Waleed Ahmed, Norbert Hauata of Tahiti, and Bertrand Brial from New Caledonia.
