FIFA Rejects Ethiopia Protest Over Disallowed Goal by Omooba77: 7:40am On Oct 17, 2013
World football governing body FIFA has responded to Ethiopia Football Federation’s protest letter against the referee’s decision to disallow their goal against Nigeria in a World Cup playoff in Addis Ababa on Sunday, superspot.com reports.

The home side felt aggrieved after the referee decided that Salhadin Said’s shot had not crossed the line in the first half of the encounter in which the Super Eagles came from behind to beat the Walya Antelopes 2-1.

Ethiopia coach Bishaw Sewnet blamed Cameroonian referee Neant Allioum for denying his team the goal and for favouring Nigeria.

“We lost the game because the referee was poor; we scored a goal that he cancelled and the referee also did other things that were questionable,” he said.

According to FIFA, the decision of the referee was final and it cannot be overturned.

The letter signed by the Director of Legal Affairs Marco Villiger and Head of Disciplinary and Governance Marc Cavallero read in part, “We acknowledge receipt of your letter dated October 13 complaining about the referee’s decision to disallow a goal against Nigeria. In respect, we would like to draw your attention to article 14 paragraph 6 of the regulations for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

“According to which protests may be made about referee’s decision regarding facts connected with play, such decisions are final and not subject to appeal, unless otherwise stipulated in the FIFA disciplinary code.

“Therefore in view of the foregoing, we regret to inform you that we are not in any position to intervene in the matter. Finally, we would like to point out that the foregoing is of a purely informative nature and therefore, without prejudice to any decision whatever.”

Ethiopia FA must be a learner, are they not aware that the referee decision on the field of play is always the final decision.. What judgment were they expecting from FIFA? Declaring the match 2-2?

they should accept the first goal and the second goal disallowed because the goal awarded to them is not even a goal

Re: FIFA Rejects Ethiopia Protest Over Disallowed Goal by Danhumprey: 1:24pm On Oct 17, 2013
I keep saying this. The foul on Ahmed Musa in the 76th minute that was ignored,which should have led to a deserve penalty for the Super Eagles,has in my opinion completely cancelled out Saladin Said's goal. The Ethiopians should go and rest and focus on the return leg.
