Singaporean Referee Foo To Officiate Super Eagles,  Brazil Friendly

Singaporean Jansen Foo has been appointed as referee for the highly anticipated  international friendly match between Nigeria and Brazil billed to hold at the Singapore  National Stadium, Kallang on October  13, reports Completesports.com.

The Nigeria Football Federation  confirmed Foo’s appointment  on their official website on Wednesday.

Foo , 35, will be assisted by compatriots Abdul Hannan (assistant referee 1), Ong Chai Lee (assistant referee 2) and G. Letchman (fourth official).

The game will be biggest for Foo who became an international referee  in 2014, but has never officiated a FIFA  organised game.

It is the first clash between both countries since five –time world champions Brazil hit the Super Eagles 3-0 in a friendly game at the National Stadium, Abuja in June 2003.

The game will kick-off at 8pm local time (1pm Nigerian time).

    Why should such an unknown referee be allowed to officiate a match of such magnitude. I hope he doesn’t become sentimental bcs of the stars Brazil will parade on that day.
