A-League ref to take World Cup match

Australia has already made quite an impression at the World Cup in Brazil and referee Ben Williams is hoping to continue the trend when he takes control of the Group E match between Honduras and Ecuador.

The experienced Hyundai A-League referee will officiate in his first FIFA World Cup match on Saturday morning (AEST) after impressing with his performances at the Under-20 World Cup in 2013.

The 37-year-old has previously officiated at the 2012 Olympic Games and was in charge of the 2012 AFC Asian Champions League final between Ulsan Hyundai and Al Ahli.

Williams will be joined by fellow Australians Matthew Cream and Hakan Anaz who will act as assistant referees for the match.
