CHAN: CAF Shuns Nigerian Referees

By Adeboye Amosu:

The Confederation of African Football have released a list of 34 referees and assistant referees that will officiate at the African Nations Championship in Rwanda with no Nigerian match official on the list, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.


It is not the first match officials from the West African nation will be omitted from a major continental action as that has become a regular occurrence in recent years.


The selected referees and their assistants will undergo a fitness test on January 13, to ascertain their readiness to take part in the competition.


The CHAN is designed for African players plying their trade in their country's domestic leagues.

Rwanda will host the competition from January 16 to February 7
