The Algerian officiating team, led by the esteemed Ghorbal Mustapha, has landed in Cameroon, signaling the imminent kickoff of the highly anticipated World Cup qualifier between Cameroon and Cape Verde at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium.

On June 8 in Yaoundé, Mustapha will be joined by his Algerian colleagues Gourari Mokrane and Zerhouni Abbes Akram serving as the first and second assistants, respectively.

Additionally, Gamouh Youcef, also from Algeria, and Labrosse Jean Claude from Seychelles will assume the roles of the fourth official and Referee assessor.

His expertise earned him a spot among the elite group of five referees considered for the prestigious task of overseeing the final match between Argentina and France in Doha, underscoring his status as one of Africa’s top referees.
