English referees Mark Clattenburg and Martin Atkinson will both take charge of games at Euro 2016 after UEFA confirmed which officials will be in France this summer.

Clattenburg and Atkinson are two of the 18 referees who will preside over the 51 matches at the tournament, along with Scottish official Willie Collum.

Other English top-flight refs Michael Oliver, Craig Pawson, Anthony Taylor and Andre Marriner will also be in France as additional assistant referees to Clattenburg and Atkinson.

Turkey's Cuneyt Cakir, who took charge of last year's Champions League final, is one of seven referees on the list who also took charge four years ago when the competition was in Poland and Ukraine.

Howard Webb officiated at that tournament and again at the 2014 World Cup but the South Yorkshire-born referee has since retired.

Both Clattenburg and Atkinson were in Poland and Ukraine as additional assistants to Webb.
