WHILE England fans await to see Gareth Southgate’s final World Cup team, FIFA have announced their final selection of referees heading to Qatar.
Amongst them is Argentina‘s Facundo Tello, who makes up a group of six South American officials travelling to the Middle East.
Here is some more information on the Argentine’s career.
Who is Facundo Tello?
Facundo Tello was born in the Buenos Aires Province in 1982.
Tello was quick to gain prominence in his homeland, officiating in the Primera Division after just four games in Argentina’s second tier.
He was asked to officiate the first ever Superclassic in 2018, returning the same year to referee the final, defining Sarmiento’s promotion to the Primera Division.
In 2019, the 40-year-old gained recognition on the international stage, joining FIFA’s refereeing list.
Tello was summoned to Chile where he was appointed fourth official at the South American Under-20 Championship.
A call up to the 2021 Arab Cup followed, where he took charge of a match between Jordan and Morocco.
