WAM

A team of Emirati referees will share the pitch with European Champs FC Bayern Munich and Egyptian giants Al Ahly SC in Monday's semi-final clash at the FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar.

Led by international referee, Mohamed Abdullah Hassan, and assisted by Mohamed Ahmed Yousof and Hasan Al Mahri, this will be the first all Emirati refereeing team to officiate in the world championship.

They have been selected in recognition of their impressive performance during their previous regional and international participations.

Bayern Munich are one of only four teams with a 100 per cent winning record in the FIFA Club World Cup. Internazionale, Milan and Sao Paulo are the other three clubs.

Meanwhile, Al Ahly SC will go into Monday's match full of confidence, with the nine-time African champs now unbeaten in 32 games.
