AAR Banti withdraws from Euro 2016

Last month, Russian AR Anton Averianov failed the fitness tests and was replaced by Nikolai Golubev. Now, with only two weeks left before the competition, UEFA was forced to make another change in the refereeing team selected for Euro 2016. Initially appointed as an additional assistant referee, Luca Banti (photo) had to withdraw from Euro 2016 due to unexpected reasons concerning his personal life. He will be replaced by Daniele Orsato. (Source: AIA)
