Skomina also refereed the Europa League final in 2017, when Man United beat Ajax, and the 2012 Super Cup, which Atletico Madrid won over Chelsea.

He worked three games at last year’s World Cup and showed the fastest red card, sending off Colombia defender Carlos Sanchez for a handball in the fourth minute against Japan.
