Four Ghanaian referees will officiate the 2014 World Cup qualifier between South Africa and Central African Republic.

FIFA Referee William Agbovi will be the centre man and will be assisted on the lines by compatriots Malik Salifu Alidu and David Laryea with Thomas Nunoo Micah serving as the fourth official.

The game will be played at the neutral venue of the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo in Cameroonian capital of Yaonde on June 9.

The South African Football Association made a request to Fifa and CAF to move the match to a neutral venue because of political unrest in the country.

Thirteen South African soldiers were killed in the Central African Republic’s capital, Bangui, in clashes with rebels two months ago.
