General assessment
Lets the players demonstrate their skills, without blowing the whistle for every niggling tackle. One caveat though: makes too much of interpreting feet getting high as dangerous play, and when doing so, not always awarding the free-kick in the right direction. Ar Menkouande Cameroon) has a different philosophy than Mr. Diatta in foul assessment, thus forcing the ref. to award free-kicks when it seemed he had no intention to do so (19', 31', 65). Ar Hassani was too strict with Zambia's goalie when he adjudged him stepping off the goal-line to save Bamba's penalty-kick. But then, where is consistency all about, as the same goalkeeper (Mweene) made a similar infringement when he saved Kolo Toure's shot without any negative reaction from Mr. Hassani?

Other Encounters

penalty spot / dead chicken

CAF AFRICAN NATIONS CUP 2012 final:
Zambia - Cote d'Ivoire, 0 - 0. Stade d'Angondjé, Libreville, Gabon, 2012-02-12

I was watching this with a friend and we both agreed it was all about the penalty spot.

DJ
Drogba missed his penalty (for the second time in an AFCON final). You could see the ball rolling a few inches from the spot while Didier turned around. Then during the shoot-out the spot slowly disappeared. The ball had to be placed next to it and of the last four shooters, three missed. The one who didn't miss came from Zambia. It wouldn't surprise me if we read later that the Zambians had buried a dead chicken under that penalty spot, to hex the shooter.

Diatta
It wasn't a difficult match for Badara Diatta. The ref who runs in slow motion was good. I found him very lenient, especially concerning stuff that happened in the penalty box, but he got away with it. Play was fair. Diatta seemed to whistle a bit late, but then it was always when he was waiting to see if there was an advantage which it never was (most players weren't good enough to anticipate, they just stopped and waited).

DJ
The television people seem to favor Drogba. It was his face and his reactions you got on your screen, and Didier knows very well how to play it. He dives quite a lot, for such a big, strong guy, and when he was hurt, play was stopped and cameras were zoomed in. It is time for the great man to call it a day. Diatta fell for it sometimes but not all the time.

match
A decent match, two teams that couldn't score, one team with famous players on their way towards retirement but still in denial, and the other team with a tactically very good coach and no forwards to speak of. But the outcome of the match would have been different if the field around that penalty spot had been better.
