Jan Sikazwe Relishes 2013 AFCON Match Officials Medal

Time Posted: February 15, 2013 6:27 pm

Kapiri Mposhi referee Jani Sikazwe says he is relishing the bronze medal he received at the ended 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Sikazwe was one of the referees at the 2013 Nations Cup and received bronze for being part of the officials who handled the third and fourth play-off between Mali and Ghana last Saturday.

Sikazwe said he enjoyed his AFCON outing.

“It feels great because the map of Zambia has been put some-where,” he said. ” We are gaining the experience although it was not easy,” Sikazwe added.

“The previous AFCON was totally different from last year’s. Last year was the first one for me but this time around I knew where to start from so it was quite easy,” he observed.

Sikazwe made his Nations Cup debut at the 2012 edition held in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

    I recall watching him Ref a group stage game, and what a good job he did. Kindly ignore Malinso above. He must have that disease that is caused when a woman passes on Syphillis to a child during labour

    good ref no doubt! one of the few that probably doesn’t dance to Mr Hayatou’s tune! Poor officiating has dogged the AFCON for decades and no one seems to have a solution! see the link i have attached, starting viewing at 9.00 timer to save your time.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BT6QRNOh_4

    That was the AFCON final in 1988 and that lovely goal you just viewed was ruled out for offside. Cameroun in the end won the game 1 nil with a dubious penalty! i remember crying as a little boy watching this game.
    Keep it up Sikazwe!!
