- As Bafana fly in Monday
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has picked Rajindraparsad Seechurn of Mauritius as referee for Wednesday’s 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Nigeria and South Africa in Uyo.
Seechurn will be assisted by countrymen, Balkrishna Bootun as Assistant Referee 1, Vivian Vally as Assistant Referee 2 and Parmendra Nunkoo as Reserve Referee.
To underscore the importance of the match, CAF has appointed Cameroonian Abel Mbengue as Security Officer, to assist the Match Commissioner, Laryea Louis from Ghana.
Meanwhile, the delegation of the Bafana Bafana to Wednesday’s match will arrive in Uyo on Monday evening.
Although the South Africa Football Association does not have the permit to land their chartered aircraft at the Ibom International Airport, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is working round the clock to ensure a permit is granted for their plane before it departs Johannesburg at 1pm on Monday.
The delegation will be composed of 26 players and 15 officials.
