RefreesRefrees at the Afcon have faced several bashing from football pundits for decisions they (pundits) believe referees take which is marring the beauty of the game.

” The referees are doing a poor job at this year’s AFCON, their decisions mar the beauty of the game,just look at the opening game,the referee denied Equatorial Guinea the chance to win when a perfect goal was denied whiles it was never an offside. The decision to take an indirect kick against Ivory Coast for their keeper catching a ball headed to him by hid player,” he told GTV.
