Algérie-Cameroun: la réponse de la Fifa au recours de la fédération algérienne

Algeria’s complaint against the arbitration of the match lost against Cameroon, during the African qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, would have been rejected by FIFA, according to a communication from the Algerian federation.

A priori, the result of Algeria-Cameroon is ratified. Just like the non-participation of the Fennecs in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The Algerian Football Federation (FAF) said on Saturday that the FIFA referees committee wrote to it after its complaint against the refereeing of the qualifying match lost 2-1 in March against the Indomitable Lions. Without it being explained, it would seem that the world body rejected this appeal which aimed to have the meeting replayed.

In its press release, the FAF states that the FIFA committee sent it the following message: “We regret that, according to your assessment, the decisions of the referees could have negatively influenced the course of the match. We have taken due note of the elements of your mail and we can already guarantee that all the incidents occurring during the match have been carefully examined by the two ‘video’ referees, in accordance with the Laws of the Game and the video assistance protocol at arbitration”.

The Algerians have still not digested

According to information from RMC Sport, do not expect FIFA to communicate on the subject. It turns out that the FAF withdrew its complaint to the disciplinary committee of the world body, and preferred to settle for an explanation from the arbitration committee concerning the decisions taken by Bakary Gassama. And it therefore seems to consider that there is no sufficiently significant irregularity for the result of the meeting to be called into question. Which is not the opinion of the Algerian supporters who, earlier in the week, demonstrated in front of the headquarters of the world body in Zurich (Switzerland).

Djamel Belmadi, the coach of Algeria, has also still not digested the arbitration of this crazy meeting. “I estimate, and 50 million people estimate, that we have been greatly wronged, he declared on May 2 in Rothen ignites on RMC. I just want to denounce the crux of the problem, which is African arbitration”. A few days earlier, the former footballer was the subject of a complaint by the Gambian federation for having made the following controversial remarks: “We do not will never again see a referee like that hurt a country. He took away the hope of a whole people and we leave him like that. I’m not saying kill him.”
