The Algerian Football Association has decided to take a new approach to what happened in the “Desert Fox” team’s match against Burkina Faso in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
The Algerian Federation will file a petition with the African Federation “C” against Botswana referee Joshua Ponto, who managed the clash with Burkina Faso, who ignored the proper sentence for Algerian star Riyad Mahrez.
The match ended in a 1-1 draw during the second round of the qualifying group stage.
The Algerian Football Association blamed the “Greens” team’s defeat in front of its Burkina Faso opponent for not noticing Mahrez’s “perfect” penalty kick in the final minutes of the match.
The Manchester City star was misled by the Burkina Faso defender in the 87th minute, but the referee demanded that the Algerian team continue to play to miss the chance to advance again.
The Algerian Football Confederation has lodged a complaint with the African Football Confederation (AFC) with a video of the referee making mistakes during the match.
Coach Jamel Belmadi’s battalion is scheduled to host the Niger national team on October 8, 2021 at the Algerian Plita Stadium.
The Greens will meet the same rival at a stadium in the Nigerian capital, Niamey, on the 12th of next month.
