12:35 PM ET 01.15 | The FIFA Referees Committee met in Zurich recently, where they selected 25 referee trios and eight support duos to officiate the upcoming 2014 World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. FIFA selected the referees based "on their personality and their quality in football understanding by being able to read the game and the teams' tactical approaches towards each game." United States ref Mark Geiger was the only American to get the call for this year's tournament in Brazil.
