RETIRED

  • In februari 2005 the FIFA Referees' Committee selected trios of match officials who come from the same country or share the same language, to do a fitness test. FIFA ruled that entire trios would be forced out of the competition if any one of the three failed the fitness test. Referee Modou Sowe's trio (assistant Referees Dramane Dante from Mali and Mamadou Ndoye from Senegal) fell short of the requirements. As this was the second time that referee Modou Sowe failed the test, (first time was at the 2005 World Youth Championships in the Netherlands) he was dropped from the list of candidates to officiate in next year's (2006) tournament. This put a serious dent in Sowe's carreer.
