Daouda Guèye: ‘Anas referee’ to officiate Ghana-Cote d’Ivoire friendly

Senegalese referee David Daouda Guèye has been appointed to officiate the international friendly between Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire on Saturday, June 12.

The 38-year-old was one of the African match officials who were caught in the Anas corruption exposé in 2018 for taking $500 from fake football agents to officiate in favour of their team in the 2017 Wafu tournament held in the Central region.

Guèye served a suspension from Caf at the time and after almost three years, he gets a return to Cape Coast as the Black Stars host the Ivorians

He will be assisted by compatriots Serigne Cheick Toure (Assistant I) and Ngom Amadou (Assistant II).

Ghana’s Latif Adaari will serve as the fourth official.

The Cape Coast Sports Stadium is the venue for the friendly with kickoff set at 17:00 GMT.

The game is the second for both Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire in the June international break as they prepare for the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers which get underway in September.

The Black Stars lost 1-0 to Morocco in their first game on Tuesday while the Elephants defeated Burkina Faso 2-1 in a similar exercise.
