Algeria: FIFA’s Head reacts to FAF’s appeal ! Video


ALGIERS- The elimination of the national football team from the 2022 World Cup has generated a lot of reactions, especially regarding the outrageous match refereeing. Yesterday, the Algerian Football Federation (FAF) announced that it had filed an appeal with FIFA against the arbitration of the Gambian Gassama.

To this end, the President of the International Federation of Football Association (FIFA), Gianni Infantino, reacted by reiterating that he was not aware of the appeal lodged by the Algerian Football Federation (FAF). He did not fail to stress that Algeria played a very good match. “Algeria played a very good match… unfortunately… it’s football, football is hard” he said, shaking his shoulders.

Here is the full communiqué of the appeal lodged by Algeria’s FAF:

The Algerian Football Federation (FAF) has lodged an appeal with the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) against the scandalous arbitration which distorted the result of the Algeria-Cameroon play-off return match played on March 29, 2022 at the Stadium of Chahid Mustapha Tchaker in the province of Blida.

The FAF is determined to use all legally permitted means to have its rights restored and to replay the match under conditions guaranteeing the honesty and partiality of the arbitration.

The FAF also requests the opening of an investigation by FIFA bodies to shed light on the arbitration of the Algeria-Cameroon match.
