(Thursday 11th October, 2018 Issue)

Three Gambian referees: Bakary Papa Gassama, Sulayman Sosseh and Abdul Aziz Bollel Jawo yesterday took charge of Ethiopia’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier match against Kenya played at the 60,000-capacity Bahir Dar International Stadium located in the north-western part of Ethiopia.

Compatriots Sulayman Sosseh and Abdul Aziz Bollel Jawo assisted three-time CAF referee of the year Bakary Papa Gassama.

The highly competent Gassama, who officiated the Group C match between Peru and Denmark at this year’s FIFA World Cup, was also in charge of the CAF Confederation Cup semi-final return leg match between Egypt’s Al-Masry SC and DR Congo’s AS Vita Club last Wednesday in Port Said.
