Nwosu rips game ref, blasts Caf



Former Golden Eaglets' coach, Henry Nwosu has hit hard on the Egyptian referee, Ghead Grisha for biased handling of Group C Matchday 2 encounter between Super Eagles and the Chipolopolo of Zambia.

The encounter on Friday at the sandy Mbombela Stadium, Nelspruit ended one goal apiece leaving both sides on two points from two matches.

Both sides must win the last games on Tuesday to chance qualification to the next round of the biennial football showpiece currently going on in South Africa.

Nwosu fumed at the poor performance of the Egyptian referee in the crucial tie accusing the Africa body, Caf of orchestrated conspiracy to see off the two-time African champions from the football fiesta.

"Caf referees have connived against Nigeria to see her out of the Africa Cup of Nations. That's the only tangible explanation one could offer for the questionable penalty the Egyptian referee awarded to the Zambians.

"The so called foul took place outside the box, how could that amount to a penalty ? I think there is a concerted effort to frustrate Nigeria and kill off her ambition for a third title.

"I'm highly disappointed. This is officiating at its lowest ebb and should not be allowed to happen anywhere in the world. Its clearly injustice pure and simple," the former Nigerian attacking midfielder angrily said to supersport.com.

Nwosu was so livid as to comment on other aspects of the game nor the chances of Eagles advancing to the next stage.

"No, that's all I can say, I've lost interest in the entire games. It doesn't matter any longer, that Egyptian referee, Grisha has poisoned my mind and equally killed any further interest I have for the Africa Cup of Nations," he fumed.

Eagles will face the Walyas Antelopes of Ethiopia in the last group game in Rustenburg on Tuesday.
