Egyptian referee to take charge of England’s clash with Panama
The Three Lions were aggrieved by some decisions that went against them in their win over Tunisia.

FIFA has announced that the 42-year-old will referee his first World Cup finals match on Sunday in Nizhny Novgorod.
Redouane Achik and Waleed Ahmed will assist Grisha, with Norbert Hauata acting as fourth official.

England will be hoping for better officiating after Monday’s narrow 2-1 win against Tunisia.
Aggrieved by the penalty awarded by referee Wilmar Roldan against Kyle Walker, the lack of intervention by the video assistant referee when Harry Kane was manhandled at corners also grated.
