The Egyptian Football Confederation, EFC has tabled a complaint to CAF for the man chosen to control the upcoming semi-finals between Cameroon versus Egypt.
Egypt has taken all measures to have the match in control, as they were all tested covid-19 negative and physically ready for the match. CAF medical staff made this result official on February 1.
The pharaohs have gone further to grunt against the Gambian referee, Bakary Gabassa, that he is not fit to control the semi-finals
40-years-old Gambian became a FIFA referee in 2007. He officiated at the 2012 Olympic tournament, in which he was the fourth official for the gold medal match between Mexico and Brazil. He also served as a referee at the 2012 and 2013 Africa Cup of Nations tournaments, as well as the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Bakery Gabassa officiated the Egyptian first game in the African Nations Cup 2021 where they suffered a defeat in the hands of The Supper Eagles of Nigerians 1:0.
Will CAF hear EFC cry and change the referee? We will discover this on February 3 in Yaounde.
