UEFA’s Chief Refereeing Officer, Roberto Rosetti, told uefa.com: “We have had some tough decisions to make on which referees will go to the Women’s EURO, because we now have a growing group of high-calibre officials from which to choose.
“Having assessed the referees at our preparation courses, and after following their performances in UEFA competitions, we know that the selected officials have all it takes to deliver confident and uniform decision-making at the final tournament.”
