In other news, while the super eagles of Nigeria displaced Lesotho in the AFCON qualifiers in Lagos, the AFCON qualifier refree between Cote d’Ivoire and Ethiopia reportedly fell ill in the 80th minute of the match, and the match ended because there was no referee available to replace him since the 4th referee was an Ivorian & couldn’t officiate a match involving his country.
