While the details of Daniel Bennett’s role at this year’s Fifa World Cup in Brazil have yet to be confirmed, the man who has been there before – Jerome Damon – has encouraged the 37-year-old schoolteacher to make the most of the learning experience.

Damon, who was in a similar situation in the 2006 World Cup in Germany, said: “He will do everything the other referees will be doing, including running fitness tests and meetings as he will be part of the refereeing team. He must just go there and enjoy himself as it will be a learning experience for him. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
