New Zealand duo Peter O’Leary and assistant referee Jan-Hendrick Hintz will be other two representatives from the Oceania Football Confederation alongside Kumar.

The upcoming involvement of O’Leary, Hintz and Kumar in Japan 2012 Club World Cup is the latest positive result of OFC’s Refereeing Assistance Programme.

The selected match officials will preside over eight games in the seven-team tournament, which will see the champions of each confederation fight it out to be crowned the best club side on the planet.
