This is the weird international career of Philip Don, referee and school headmaster. He had his FIFA for only two years when he not only took charge of the Champions League final but also of two matches in the World Cup. And not just any match: one was a quarter-final. No one had ever done that before and no one will ever do that again.
A year later he retired.

Referee: 1986-1995, Premier League 1992-1995, FIFA 1992-1995.

retirement

Don retired because of pressure from his job as a head master.
