Euro 2016: British referee trio selected by Uefa

William Collum
Scottish official Willie Collum has refereed in the Champions League

English referees Martin Atkinson and Mark Clattenburg and Scotland's Willie Collum have been picked for Euro 2016.

All three will officiate in their first major international tournament.

No Briton has refereed a European Championship final since Arthur Ellis and Arthur Holland took charge of the first two in 1960 and 1964.

England are the only country to have two representatives. Italy's Nicola Rizzoli, who refereed the 2014 World Cup final, is also on the 18-man list.

Each refereeing team will consist of a referee, two assistant referees and two additional assistant referees.

The majority of assistants and additional assistants will come from the same country as the referee, with the full list of officials to be announced in February.

Atkinson, Clattenburg and Collum were all additional assistants at Euro 2012.
