RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) -- Four years after refereeing the World Cup final, Howard Webb gets his first duty this tournament in the Colombia vs. Ivory Coast match.

The English official's assignment was among the three Thursday match selections announced by FIFA on Tuesday.

Colombia and Ivory Coast, which both won their Group C openers, play in Brasilia.

FIFA says Carlos Velasco Carballo of Spain will handle England vs. Uruguay in Sao Paulo. Both teams lost their first matches in Group D.
