New Delhi: India's Uvena Fernandes has been selected to officiate as an assistant referee in the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup slated to be held in France from August 5-24.

Uvena had earlier become the first Indian female assistant referee to officiate in a World Cup including the final match when she officiated in the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup final match between Japan and North Korea.

She had officiated four World Cup matches in the Women's U-17 World Cup for which she was presented the AFC Referees Special Award in 2016.

"It is like another dream coming true and I cannot believe that I will be officiating in my second FIFA World Cup in less than two years," she told www.the-aiff.com on Thursday.

"I thank AIFF for all the guidance and help. It is not only a boost for me, it's a boost for women's football and women's refereeing in general and it shows that Indian referees can also make it to the big stage on a regular basis," she added.
