With tears in his eyes FIFA referee Ramesh Ramdhan blew his whistle for the last time in 2005 ending a 25 year career that has sent him to venues all over the world.

It was Ramesh' uncle Richard who insisted he started refereeing in 1979. Ramesh wasn't sure, he didn't really like it, even when he had all the necessary papers he stiill didn't think taking charge of matches was for him.
But he went on with it and ended up officiating in maybe 170 international games. One was a group stage match in the 1998 World Cup and another was the Gold Cup final in the same year. An impressive career.
