Martin Atkinson to referee Wales' clash with Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland v. Germany June 16.

English referee Martin Atkinson will take charge of Saturday's Euro 2016 clash between Wales and Northern Ireland.

The last-16 tie will be Atkinson's third game of this summer's championships after he officiated Germany's victory over Ukraine and Portugal's thrilling 3-3 draw against Hungary on Wednesday.

Mark Clattenburg will also feature in the first round of the knock-out stages.

Englishman Clattenburg, who took charge of last month's FA Cup final as well as the all-Madrid Champions League showpiece, has been handed Switzerland's match against Poland on Saturday.

Clattenburg oversaw Italy's win against Belgium and the Czech Republic's 2-2 draw with Croatia which was marred by crowd trouble.
