The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has announced that Referee Dahane Beida from Mauritania will officiate the final match between Nigeria and Cote D’Ivoire in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, scheduled for Sunday.

This announcement comes as CAF unveils the match officials for the highly anticipated final, set to take place at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium in Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire.

Joining Referee Dahane Beida on the officiating team will be first assistant referee Jerson Emiliano Dos Santos from Angola, while Diana Chikotesha has been appointed as the second assistant referee.

Morocco’s Bouchra Karboubi will serve as the fourth official for the match.

The final showdown on Sunday is scheduled to kick off at 9pm WAT at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium.

The announcement of Referee Dahane Beida for the final match brings back memories of Nigeria’s 1988 final against Cameroon, where a Mauritanian referee, Idrissa Sarr, controversially ruled out a Henry Nwosu header for offside, resulting in Nigeria’s 1-0 loss.
