Rakesh Chand Varman, who has been busy in the O League since 2002, officiated at the FIFA u-17 World Cup in Korea August 2007, an important step in his career, that has to lead to an appointment for the 2010 World Cup.

Oceania

Off course we'd like learn more about Varman and his collegues from Oceania, but to start the Oceania Confederations site (www.oceaniafootball.com) must be the slowest in the world. If you have any information about this not very well known confederation, please tell us.

2010

And all according to plan, Chand Varman is on the 54 member shortlist of candidates for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
