Croatian referee Tihomir Pejin (Mr. Respect) has been appointed to officiate Egypt Premier League game between Zamalek SC and Wadi Degla SC this Thursday. The referees committee of the Egyptian Football Association announced.

It is the Croatian second game in the Egyptian Premier League this term after officiating Pyramids and Misr El-Makkasa.

It wil be recalled that the Egyptian Football Association Referee committee appointed Norwegian referee, Ola Hobber Nilsen, to take charge of the clash between Zamalek and Pyramids at the Egyptian League in 2018.

35- year- old Tihomir Pejin has not many big international games under his belt, as he has never officiated in the UEFA Champions League and took over only six games in Europa League playoffs.

The game sees Zamalek who currently occupy the third place in the league slug it out against Wadi Degla who sits in the 12th place.
