The Confederation of African Football, CAF, has named Tunisian Med Said Kordi as the center referee to handle Ghana's 2015 AFCON qualifier against Uganda next weekend, can confirm. 

The 39-year-old will be flanked by countrymen Anouar Hmila and Moheen Ben Salem as assistant referees with Slim Jedidi confirmed for the fourth official role.

Med Said is not strange to Ghana games as he handled Ghana's 1-0 loss against Zambia in Lusaka during the 2014 World Cup qualifiers in June 2012.

Ghana midfielder Derek Boateng has launched a scathing attack on the Tunisian for Ghana’s Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifier defeat to the Chipolopolos for what was largely seen an unfair officiating.

Controversial Nigerian official Linus Mba has also been named as the match Commissioner for the crunch game at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium after FIFA lifted their ban on him.

    GSN it was in Ndola where he officiated. Derick Boateng broke an expensive ZNBC camera and Muntari + Ayew messed dressing rooms with their shit inside LM stadium. If u are humans u should apologise 4 that but you have remained mute. Merdi Cordi is aware of your dogs maners so take care as Uganda kick your asses @ bababoons stadium.
