Referee Daniel Laryea has been appointed to officiate the crunch CAF Confederation Cup Group D clash between Zamalek and Gor Mahia on Sunday. 

The 30-year-old will be assisted by Nigeria's Abel Baba and Issa Yaya from Chad.

The match will be played at the Borg El-Arab Stadium in Alexandria.

Laryea was selected after Football Kenya Federation wrote to Caf complaining about the officiating in last Sunday's match between Gor Mahia and hosts Hussein Dey in Algiers.

In a letter sent to Caf dated March 4, 2019, FKF criticised the performance of centre referee Boubou Traore and sought clarification on why he disallowed Shafik Batambuze's 58th minute goal from a Francis Kahata corner in the match that ended 1-0 in favour of Hussein Dey.

CAF trusts Laryea, who officiated at the 2018 Africa Nations Championship (Chan) tournament in Morocco, to do a good job in this crucial.
