    Labrador - Confeds Final commissioner

    RIO DE JANEIRO -- Puerto Rico Football Federation (PRFF) President Eric Labrador has received a high honor from his peers in FIFA. The CONCACAF envoy was named Match Commissioner for the FIFA Confederations Cup final between host Brazil and world champion Spain.

    As match commissioner, Labrador - who has headed the PRFF for more than two years - will supervise the duties of all game officials, and assure that the contest maintains the strictest international standards as host Brazil takes on Spain for the title.

    "It was surprising to be named for the final, and humbling," Labrador told CONCACAF.com. "But in the end the beauty is to celebrate with all the people of CONCACAF.

    "It's been a great tournament, and promises to be a great final."

    In addition to his duties with the PRFF, Labrador is a member of FIFA's Organization Committee. He has served as match commissioner for four previous matches at this year's Confederations Cup, including the opening round tilt between Italy and Brazil.
