Iranian referee in World Cup 2010

Kamranifar has been an international football referee since 2001. He has been 1st assistant referee in two games in South Africa so far. In this photo head coach Ottmar Hitzfeld and Stephan Lichtsteiner of Switzerland argue as they appeal to Kamranifar after referee Khalil Al Ghamdi sends off Valon Behrami for elbowing Arturo Vidal of Chile in the face during the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa Group H match between Chile and Switzerland at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on June 21, 2010 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
