FIFA has decided the refereeing teams who will lead the Semifinal matches today in Brazil.

Both matches are replays of games from the Rio 2016 group stage and the same could be said of the referees as they are the same from the group stage.

Lucila Venegas has proved herself as one of FIFA’s most relied upon referees, and the Mexican takes charge of Brazil – Sweden, having led the 5-1 win for the hosts in the group stage. Ri Hyang Ok has showed again why FIFA designates her for some of the most important matches, as she did for the 1-2 in the group, she leads Germany – Canada.

    Looking forward to see the outcome of these matches. I think as they have played so recently, we will see some very different tactics
