French referee Clement Turpin will take charge of Friday's opening match in this year's Euros between Germany and Scotland in Munich, UEFA announced on its website on Wednesday.

The 42-year-old refereed five matches across the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, including Brazil’s last-16 victory over South Korea in Qatar. 

He also handled four group matches at previous Euros in 2016 and the Covid-delayed tournament in 2021.

Two years ago, Turpin whistled the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool in Paris and this season refereed Bayern's 2-2 draw with Madrid in Munich in the Champions League semi-final first leg.
