Saúl Esteban Laverni, born in Rosario, Santa Fe, is an international referee since January 2007, and is also one of the biggest promises of the Argentinian Referee Staff.
He is a CONMEBOL Elite Category referee.

Experience

Although he has no big experience, he is considered a Top-5 referee in Argentinian League. Laverni refereed his first match in 1st division in 2004 and in 2006 he was given some important matches, including games in Boca Juniors´Bombonera or River Plate´s Monumental. In 2007, he refereed two matches in the first round of Copa Toyota Libertadores. In 2008, he was nominated for refereeing CONMEBOL Recopa Sudamericana Final between Boca Juniors and Arsenal, both from Argentina.

2008

At the end of 2008, the Argentinian Apertura tournament ended with 3 teams tied in the 1st position (Boca Juniors, San Lorenzo and Tigre). Because of this, a "triangular tournament" between these three teams had to be played, in order to determinate the new champion. Laverni was one of the three referees chosen to officiate in these finals: he took charge of the first one, San Lorenzo-Tigre.

WC?

It´s a bit early to say, but he could be Argentinian referee in FIFA World Cup 2014.
