CAF snubs Ghanaian referee for 2019 AFCON

Top Ghanaian referee Daniel Nii Laryea was not part of the 56 officials selected by CAF for the upcoming 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Laryea, who was part of the initial list of referees for the pre-tournament seminar failed to make the cut for the event.

The tournament runs from 21st June to 19th July.

Laryea, who holds a FIFA badge, has been one of the centre referees used during CAF’s inter-clubs competition.

Last year, he was selected for the CHAN tournament in Morocco.

He was among the referees selected for the 2017 African Youth Championship in Gabon and the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations hosted by Ghana in September.
