That assistant did a Bakhramov: he was sure he saw the ball bounce behind the line. Don't blame Damon for it. That was the assistant's job and we can say that the assistants in this tournament are far below standard.
aren't really good either. The worst ref until now seems to be Coffi Codjia, two times World Cup and last CAN final referee. The big man in Africa. The second big man in Africa must be Jerome Damon, and he was alright in this match. I don't agree with all the 5s and 4s given to him in the reports.
It was just again one of those ugly African matches. A lot of misses, kicks from behind, players stumbling over each other, passes going nowhere near a team mate. The ref seemed to join everyone in the misery. By being slightly erratic and in a bad mood. Jeez, I really hate that Cameroon team and the Egyptians weren't much better.
