Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi and goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama Friday slammed the Egyptian referee, Grisha Ghead for awarding the Zambians a late penalty which enabled them to draw level with the Eagles in their second group game at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit, South Africa.
Goalkeeper Enyeama was more vitriolic in his attack describing the referee’s decision the most bizarre he has experienced in his football career.
“That penalty call is the worst I have seen in my whole football career. You don’t make such calls in a match of that magnitude, the call was weak and I’m mad about it. They (referees) did it to us against Burkina Faso also,” he sressed.
Reacting too, Keshi said he would leave people to judge the referee because “ I don’t like talking about referees. In the match against Burkina Faso, the referee gave us five yellow cards and a red car. The referee is the boss and he is in control of the game,” keshi said in a post match conference.
