English First Group referee Anthony Taylor has been chosen to officiate this year's Under-19 European Championship final in Greek Katerini, where Spain and Russia are about to meet on Sunday evening.

Taylor will be supported by Danish Dennis Wollenberg Rasmussen and Serbian Nemanja Petrović on the sidelines. Hungary's Tamás Bognar will be the fourth official. The officiating team will be assessed by Austrian referee observer Konrad Plautz.
Having already overseen the opening match between Greece and the Ukraine, Taylor also took control over Germany's late win over the Netherlands.
This means: All three final referees of this year's UEFA mini tournaments took charge of the respective competition's opening match as well (Raczkowski at U-17 EURO, Marciniak at U-21 EURO, Taylor at U-19 EURO).
