The Confederation of African Football, CAF, has picked Rajindraparsad Seechurn of Mauritius as referee for Wednesday’s 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Nigeria and South Africa in Uyo.
Seechurn will be assisted by his countrymen, Balkrishna Bootun as the Assistant Referee 1, Vivian Vally as the Assistant Referee 2 and Parmendra Nunkoo as Reserve Referee.
To underscore the importance of the match, CAF has appointed Cameroonian Abel Mbengue as Security Officer, to assist the Match Commissioner, Laryea Louis from Ghana.
Also, the delegation of the Bafana Bafana to Wednesday’s match will arrive in Uyo on Monday evening. The South Africa Football Association does not have the permit to land their chartered aircraft at the Ibom International Airport so the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, is making efforts to ensure they get a landing permit before the arrival of the 41 contingent.
The match between Nigeria and South Africa will be played at 5 p.m.
