  • how is this CAF of a Federation thinking?.. Well we all know the vendetta south Africans have against Nigeria maybe this is Patriece Motsepe Way of taking out his hate towards Nigeria

  • Footballfanatic 2 years ago

    Bro even the assistants are North Africans and then match Commissioner is SL….. So the only official who is not North AFRICAN is basically a stooge lol…

  • It is becoming glaringly obvious that there is a problem in African football Organisation and FIFA is aware of it but, still not willing to do anything about it.

    It was a Moroccan referee who gifted you a sham penalty against Ghana. Now you guys don’t like north Africans officiating your matches.

      The Morrocan ref handled the first leg. The second leg was a Malian ref. Check your fact, or maybe you dey talk different match. African football in general is not fair, I don’t know why people complain so much. Everybody will do mischief for their home matches

      • Badge 2 years ago

        Bro, either Malian or Moroccan official, dem all be African referees. Like you said every team will do mischief for their home games.
