The Algerian Football Federation decided to take a new procedure, regarding what happened during the match of the “Desert Foxes” team against Burkina Faso in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
The Algerian Federation will file a grievance with the African Confederation “C” against the Botswana referee, Joshua Bondo, who managed the confrontation with Burkina Faso, for ignoring a correct penalty kick for Algerian star Riyad Mahrez.
The match ended in a 1-1 draw during the match of the second round of the qualifying group stage.
The Algerian Football Federation blamed the “Greens” team’s failure in front of its Burkinabe counterpart to the referee, who overlooked a “correct” penalty kick by Mahrez in the last minutes of the match.
The Manchester City star was fouled by a Burkina Faso defender in the 87th minute, but the referee demanded to continue playing to deprive the Algerian team of an opportunity to advance again.
The Algerian Football Federation submitted a complaint to the Confederation of African Football, accompanied by a video of the mistakes made by the referee during the match.
Coach Djamel Belmadi’s battalion is scheduled to host the Niger national team on October 8, 2021 at the Algerian Blida Stadium.
The Greens will meet the same competitor, on the 12th of next month, at the stadium in the Nigerian capital, Niamey.
