Officiating referees

A 32-man list has been released containing the names of referees and assistant referees for the 2023 African Cup of Nation (AFCON) tournament scheduled for Cote d’Ivoire.

The list released on Tuesday, however, has generated reactions as no Nigerian was included to play a part in the officiating.

The list published on Tuesday on the official website of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) contained the names of 32 centre referees, 33 assistant referees, and 2 VAR officials.

The likes of the host country, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Algeria, South Africa, Egypt, Tunisia and the Benin Republic, all had at least a referee representing their nations in the AFCON games, except Nigeria.
