Brazil v. Chile will need a strong hand, and they have it in Webb, who was stellar in his last appearance. Kuipers has impressed in this tournament, as well.
Also, we get some pretty, pretty boys for fourth officials: Felix Brych of Germany and Svein Oddvar Moen of Norway.
Referee: Bjorn Kuipers (NED)
Assistant Referee 1: Sander Van Roekel (NED)
Assistant Referee 2: Erwin Zeinstra (NED)
Fourth Official: Svein Oddvar Moen (NOR)
