Information available to Happyghana.com indicates that Gabonese Referee, Eric Otogo-Castane will officiate the match between the Black Stars of Ghana and the African Wild Dogs of Guinea Bissau in the Group F clash in Suez Stadium, Egypt on Tuesday at the ongoing Africa Cup Of Nations (AFCON).
The last time Castane officiated a Black Stars game at the AFCON was in 2015, where Ghana thrashed hosts Equatorial Guinea by 3-0.
In 2015, CAF made a disputable decision by appointing controversial referee Otogo-Castane to take charge of Ghana’s AFCON semi-final match against hosts Equatorial Guinea on Thursday.
The divisive appointment of the match official from neighbouring Gabon comes just two days after the referee in Equatorial Guinea’s match favoured the host nation by awarding a dubious penalty which helped the home side to edge past Tunisia to reach the last four.
This has raised suspicions that the referees favour the home side Equatorial Guinea and with the referee coming from their neighbouring country Gabon.
