Profile: Olegário Benquerenca

An insurance broker based in Leiria, Benquerenca was born on 18 October 1969 and, having made progress after officiating his first top-flight match in October 1995, won his Fifa international badge in 2001 at the tender refereeing age of 31.

He earned his international stripes working in each of Uefa’s age-group competitions – U17s, U19s and U21s – before gaining further experience in the Uefa Cup and Uefa Champions League qualifying.

Benquerenca’s first taste of Champions League group-stage action came in September 2005 as Udinese defeated Panathinaikos 3-0, and he was also in the middle for a World Cup qualifier involving Italy, the eventual winners, and Moldova in Lecce.

Other highlights include the 2002 and 2008 Portuguese Cup finals and his first Euro 2008 qualifier as Romania won 2-0 in Albania.

Benquerenca, who lists music and cycling as his main hobbies, was fourth official at three matches in the final tournament in Austria and Switzerland.

He has continued to feature regularly in the Champions League, taking charge of the 2010 semi-final first leg between eventual winners Internazionale and Barcelona, and oversaw three games at the 2010 World Cup finals, notably the Uruguay-Ghana quarter-final.
