THERE will be a familiar face in the middle for Uruguay's opening World Cup game against South Korea.

Clement Turpin is a hugely experienced referee and was in charge for the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid last season.

Turpin is one of the most experienced whistlers heading to this summer's tournament.

The Frenchman began in the National league in 2006, taking just two years to reach Ligue 1 and the highest rung in the domestic ladder.

In 2010 he was given Fifa listed status, meaning he could branch out into Europe.

Since then he has reffed in 2014 and 2018 World Cup qualifiers and was in the middle during Euro 2016 in his home country.

You may recognise Turpin from the Europa League final in Gdansk last year, where he was ably assisted by Jérôme Brisard and Benjamin Pages.

Those two assistants have worked with the Frenchman for years.

Ahead of the 2021 match between Man Utd and Villarreal he said: "I feel very proud.

"Not only for myself, but also for my assistants, who have accompanied me for a number of years, and for all referees in France.

"I never said to myself that I would referee a European final one day.

“From the start, I preferred to set myself small targets and challenges along the way.

"I’ve never had a particular role model as a referee, but I’ve watched other referees and taken little bits of what they do and incorporated them into my own refereeing.”

Watch Neymar train and score cheeky goal as he hands Brazil World Cup injury boost ahead of last 16 clash

NEYMAR has handed Brazil a major injury boost as he trained with the rest of the squad ahead of the 2022 World Cup knockouts.

The star forward limped off the pitch during the Selecao's World Cup opener against Serbia due to an ankle injury and was sidelined for the rest of the group stage.

A CBF acaba de divulgar imagens do treino deste sábado e com bons registros para animar o torcedor: Neymar no aquecimento e também realizando alguns trabalhos de finalização. Além dele, Danilo também estava nas atividades. @R10Score pic.twitter.com/tycsryKj98

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar also suffered an illness that didn't allow him to watch his national team beat Switzerland 1-0 at the 974 Stadium.

However, the Brazil international recovered from his fever and watched Tite's men during their shock 1-0 loss to Cameroon on Friday at the Lusail Stadium.

The loss to the Indomitable Lions didn't cost the Brazilians as they still finished top of Group G and will take on South Korea in the Last 16 on Monday.

And Neymar has handed Tite a major boost as a clip emerged on social media showing him training on Saturday and looking fit enough for a return against the South Koreans.

The ex-Barcelona star performed some clinical shots with both legs in front of the camera.

The 30-year-old also scored a cheeky goal as he nutmegged third-choice goalkeeper Weverton.

Neymar was in very high spirits as he also had a quick celebration after his beautiful set of skill.

The Brazilian suggested he will be fighting fit for the knockouts as he pointed at the camera with a big smile.

This comes after recent fears suggesting he suffered ligament damage and would be out for the whole tournament.

However, Neymar's presence in training has lifted spirits as he was also joined by Danilo, who suffered an ankle injury as well.

This is very good news for Tite after both Gabriel Jesus and Alex Telles were ruled out of the rest of the tournament with a knee injury.
