Special Olympics El Salvador Ambassador for Brazil 2014 World Cup

By Guisele Calderón

Special Olympics El Salvador Ambassador, Joel Aguilar Chicas has been selected by the Commission of FIFA Referees to be one of the referees for the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. In choosing the selected referees for the Brazilian World, the referee’s personality and ability to understand the game, and each team in each game were taken into account. Assistants to Joel Aguilar were William Alexander Torres and Juan Francisco Zumba Guy. They were also chosen for the FIFA 2010 World Cup in South Africa 2010, making it the second time we participate in a World Cup. What a pride for Salvadorans and for Special Olympics El Salvador!
