Portuguese official Pedro Proenca has been named as the referee for Sunday's Euro 2012 decider between Spain and Italy.

Proenca, 41, also refereed the Champions League final between Chelsea and Bayern Munich last month, which means he will achieve a similar feat to Howard Webb who refereed the World Cup final and the Champions League showpiece in 2010.

So far in the tournament he has taken charge of three matches, including Spain's 4-0 thrashing of Ireland and Italy's penalty shootout success against England. His other match was Sweden's 2-0 win over France.

Fellow Portuguese Bertino Cunha Miranda and Ricardo Jorge Ferreira Santos have been named as linesmen, with Manuel Jorge Neves Moreira De Sousa and Duarte Nuno Pereira Gomes the additional assistant referees. Cuneyt Cakir will be the fourth official and Bahattin Duran the reserve, both of whom are from Turkey.
