Incredible but true. Cuneyt Cakir, the controversial referee from Real Madrid's 2-2 draw with Bayern in the Champions League semi-final, could take charge of the final itself in Kiev.
The president of the Turkish refereeing committee, Ysusuf Namoglu said: "The UEFA committees are very happy with his performance. We hope he will be the referee for the World Cup final in Russia. He did very well in the semi-final of the champions and he could have the chance to referee the final too."
"Cakir refereed another Champions League corner and Infantino and Collina trust him a lot because he always delivers."
On the controversies he said: "I cannot comment about a game that has been refereed. Everyone saw his performance nad Massimo Busacca from UEFA and FIFA did too."
