The International Football Federation (FIFA) has sent a letter of congratulations to all the referees who officiated the qualifying play-off matches for the next edition of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

According to the Algerian journalist Hassine Jenad, the Gambian referee Bakary Gassama who officiated the return match between the “Fennecs” and the “Indomitable Lions”. also received this letter of congratulations,



This FIFA initiative logically excludes the possibility of rescheduling the match, even if the Algerian Football Federation (FAF) has changed its strategy by seizing the FIFA Arbitration Committee.

Guilty of having made mistakes during the great explanation of “Tchakar”, Bakary Gassama has become the sworn enemy of a whole people who accuse him of having precipitated the elimination of the Algerian selection from the race for the World Cup. .

Algerian supporters went very far by organizing a demonstration in front of the headquarters of the International Football Federation (FIFA) in Zurich to challenge the arbitration of Bakary Gassama.

It should be recalled that the governing body of world football will deliver its verdict in this case on April 21.
