Kapiri Mposhi FIFA referee Janny Sikazwe has been named fourth official for Sunday’s 2015 Africa Cup final between Ghana and Cote D’Ivoire.
This means Sikazwe is the standby referee for the 21h00 AFCON final to be played in Bata.
“I am not the centre man but the fourth official,” Sikazwe responded to a press query on Friday evening.
Gambia’s Bakary Gassama is the centre referee for the final and will be assisted by Djibril Camara of Senegal and Waleed Ali of Sudan.
Meanwhile, Sikazwe had earlier at the Africa Cup handled the quarterfinal match in which Ghana beat Guinea 3-0.
The Kapiri Mposhi teacher also handled the Group D match involving Mali and Cameroon that ended goalless before being fourth official in the Group C match that saw Ghana beat South Africa 2-1.
This is Sikazwe’s third consective Africa Cup appearance having made his AFCON debut at the 2012 event co-hosted by Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
