AFCON 2019: CAF Releases Full List Of Referees, Nigeria Snubbed - MySportDab by Sportdab(m): 2:37pm On Apr 19, 2019
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) have announced a 27-man list of the initial referees chosen to officiate the 2019 AFCON, which included three Egyptians, MySportDab reports.

The 2019 African Cup of Nations is set to take place in Egypt between June 21 and July 19.

The list of referees saw the presence of 20 different nationalities from across the continent, with referees like Mostafa Gharbal and Bacary Gassama making the cut.

Three referees from host country also made the list, namely Gehad Grisha, Mahmoud El-Banna, and Amin Omar.

Grisha have officiated in the last four AFCONS, as well as the 2018 World Cup, when he took charge of the England vs Panama game in the group-stages.

On the other hand, Amin Omar and El-Banna have never had the chance to officiate in any major tournaments and the 2019 AFCON could be their first-ever one.

Once again Nigerian referees will not whistle at the Africa Cup of Nations as it followed a decade long tradition of Nigerian referees missing out on FIFA and CAF tournaments.


Full List Of Referees:

Mostafa Gharbal (Algeria),

Helder Martinez (Angola),

Joshua Bondo , Pacifique Ndabihawenimana (Botswana),

Aliom Aliom (Cameroon),

Gianni Sikazowi (Zambia)

Gehad Grisha, Mahmoud El-Banna, Amin Omar (Egypt),

Bacary Gassama (Gambia),

Daniel Laria (Ghana),

Peter Waweru (Kenya),

Mamadou Keita (Mali),

See how our so-called leaders tainted our image in every sector. I wonder the kind of devil was sent down to Nigeria on corruption assignment that he didn't even spared a single sector. We need revival and re-evaluation of our mindsets in this country.

Bia CAF, this has got to stop.

If we stomach FIFA snubbing us, we won't stomach this as well.

Are our referees the worst in the continent?

Seriously, not even a linesman?

NFF needs to warn these guys and press it as a demand.

Our referees are all not bad eggs.

Apart from that, who in the world, apart from some crude oil for one Nigeria Nigerians, sees Nigeria as a worthy country?

Nigerians needed to travel outside Nigeria to see how low this country is placed.

But Igbo people have been asking to leave Nigeria in peace manner, after three years most brutal civil war in recent history, you still blackmail Igbo people to remain with you in the most dysfunctional country on earth called Nigeria, because of crude oil, because you don't understand that crude oil is not all there is for a country to survive on.
