FIFA appoints NFF’s Sanusi to oversee Ghana vs Zimbabwe World Cup qualifier

FIFA has appointed the General Secretary of Nigeria Football Federation, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, as match commissioner for next month’s Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar African qualifying tie between Ghana and Zimbabwe in Cape Coast, Ghana.

The Black Stars and the Warriors will face each other at the Cape Coast Stadium on 9 October.

Sanusi, who was also match commissioner when Egypt defeated Angola 1-0 in Cairo in one of the Day 1 encounters earlier this month, will work with Gabonese referee Pierre Ghislain Atcho and his compatriots Boris Marlaise Ditsoga (assistant referee 1), Montel Moussounda (assistant referee 2) and Eric Otogo Castane (fourth official).

The referee assessor is Guinean Aboubacar Doumbouya, while Dr Christiana Baah of Ghana will serve as medical officer.

Nigeria’s own Day 3 encounter is at home to Central African Republic on 7 October, with the return leg scheduled for Douala, Cameroon four days later.

The Super Eagles have a perfect record in the race to Qatar 2022 having defeated Liberia 2-0 in Lagos and Cape Verde 2-1 in Mindelo to go to the top Group C with six points from two matches, three ahead of second-placed Liberia.
