8. REFEREES: Three Americans on China '07 short list

Americans Jennifer Bennett, Kari Seitz and Sharon Wheeler have been nominated to serve as referees at the 2007 Women's World Cup in China.

The FIFA Referees Committee has drawn up a list of 51 women as candidates to referee at China 2007. The list is based on assessments carried out at the 2005, 2006 and 2007 Algarve Cups, the 2006 U-20 Women's World Championship and a selection course held on the Canary Islands in January 2007.

The 51 candidates will meet in Zurich, Switzerland, May 7-11 for a final selection course before the definitive list is published.
