FIFA has appointed Wilson Lamouroux as the center referee for the final Group A match between Nigeria and Croatia at the ongoing FIFA U20 World Cup in Chile.

The 36-year-old Colombian has been an international referee since 2013 and he would be assisted by compatriots, Alexander Guzman and Wilmar Navarro. The fourth of official is Reyna Oscar from Guatemala.

FIFA also affirmed that Nigeria’s Eaglets will don their traditional home colour with players in green jersey, short and socks while the goalkeepers would be in purple attire. Croatia will be in red attire.

The last time both teams met at the Suwon U17 Invitational Tournament held in South Korea recently, the Croats defeated the Golden Eaglets 3-2, denying them the opportunity of winning the Tournament.
