  1. Dear Editors,

    Can’t we find another photo of this over qualified referee from the old country? He is another extremely capable countryman who had made us all proud in his officiating one of the CAF matches that showed who we really are, who know how to bestow the proper justice. He had his mind when he made that historic decision but this photo does show him as if he does not have one. Thank you very much.
