Juan Martínez Munuera has taken assign of matches involving Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in Spain’s La Liga, though on Sunday he has his biggest assignment yet, when he referees a UEFA European Under-19 Championship final.

For a 36-year-old Spaniard from Benidorm a compare between Italy and Portugal in Seinajoki will be his fifth during a contest in Finland, dual of that have been as referee.

“For me, it has been a good experience,” Martínez Munuera told “Under-19 matches can be some of a many severe games in terms of mental focus, given while a players are well-disciplined and also have a high ability level, they are still immature players, and for this reason we need even some-more thoroughness to design a unexpected.

“We started scarcely 3 weeks ago, 8 referees and 12 assistants from opposite countries, and we can learn a lot from everybody. You learn and urge your refereeing a good deal. I’m totally certain that when we get home, I’ll be a improved arbitrate than when we arrived here.”

His tour as a arbitrate is one that started when he was a child, and one that he owes in many ways to his father. “My father was a arbitrate in a third multiplication in Spain and when we was three, we started going to his matches with him, and we even helped him out with his reports, essay a players’ names and so on.

If we try to urge your teamwork, we get closer to success.”

Martínez Munuera has left no mill unturned in his preparations for a game, a routine that has concerned study lots of videos. “In credentials for each match, we watch a lot of clips, that we have finished with Italy and Portugal for a final. Part of a credentials is perplexing to know a teams and players as most as possible.”

On Wednesday he goes true from Finland to Denmark to go in a UEFA Champions League – though before afterwards it is a Under-19 showpiece in front of a packaged residence during a Seinäjoki Stadium. “A good diversion will be if we don’t make any mistakes,” he emphasises, “and everybody is happy.”
