1 COMMENT

  1. I seriously doubt the credibility of the selection criteria used here. Clearly, some of the referees are coming from countries where soccer league structures are either inferior or in shambles. Honestly, there is no justification to have referees from Botswana, Chad or Eritrea where Zambian referees have been left out. This is very painful especially when one considers Zambia’s soccer reputation in Africa let alone Southern Africa.
