Abuja – Zimbabwean Brighton Mudzamiri, who will be the referee assessor in Friday’s FIFA World Cup qualifying match between Nigeria and Cameroon in Uyo, has arrived the country on Tuesday.

The other officials, led by Referee Ibrahim Ghead Grisha, are expected to arrive Nigeria on Wednesday, a statement on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) website said.

“Grisha will take charge at the centre, while Moroccan official Redouane Achik will serve as Assistant Referee 1 and Sudanese Waleed Ahmed Ali will be Assistant Referee 2.

“Grisha’s compatriot, Mahmoud Zakaria Mohamed El Banna will serve as Reserve Referee, while Mr Jean Medard Kossa, from Congo Brazzaville will be match commissioner.’’

Table–toppers Nigeria will battle Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions in perhaps the biggest match of Africa’s Group B of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying race on Friday at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.

Nigeria, on six maximum points from their first two matches, will all but seal a place in Russia if they snap up the three points on offer on Friday evening.

Zambia and Algeria, the other two teams in the group, have one point each and clash at the Heroes National Stadium in Lusaka on Saturday. (NAN)
