Only three FIFA referees over 45 in 2016

Although FIFA decided last year to remove the age limits for international referees and assistant referees, only three referees older than 45 were accepted for 2016: Baldomero Toledo (USA, 1970, photo), Walter Quesada (CRC, 1970) and Tayeb Shamsuzzaman (BAN, 1970). There is also an interesting return to the FIFA List of a 45-year-old referee: Diego Abal (ARG, 1971). 
On the assistant referees lists, there are six FIFA officials over 45: Martin Wilczek (CZE, 1970), Ayman Degaish (EGY, 1970), Michael Mullarkey (ENG, 1970), Bakhadyr Kochkarov (KGZ, 1970), Nikolai Golubev (RUS, 1970) and Bojan Ul (SVN, 1970).
There are no women referees, women assistant referees, futsal referees or beach soccer referees older than 45 on the 2016 FIFA Lists.
