AFCON 2013: CAF Sacks Referee Of Nigeria Zambia Match

The Egyptian referee, Ghead Grisha, who officiated the Group C match between Super Eagles of Nigeria and Cup holders Zambia in Nelspruit on Friday, has been sacked from the on-going 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Grisha awarded a controversial penalty to the Chipolopo of Zambia, late in the game, against the Super Eagles four minutes from time, which enabled the champions to draw level in the game at Mbombela Stadium.

A top official of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) confirmed on Sunday that the 36-year old referee, who became an international referee in 2008, will no longer take part in the on-going championship in South Africa.
