Gomes entrusted with another Caf duty


South African referee Victor Gomes has been appointed to officiate the Caf Confederation Cup Play-off match between FC Platinum and ASC Les Jaraaf De Daka.

This comes after Gomes was appointed to handle the Caf Champions League group stage encounter between El Hilal of Sudan and DR Congo giants TP Mazembe on 24 February 2021 at the Omdurman stadium in Sudan.

FC Platinum will welcome the Senegalese-based side at home on Sunday, 14 February 2021.

The game is scheduled for 15:00 in the afternoon at the National Sports Stadium in Zimbabwe.

According to the South African Football Association (Safa) Gomes will replace Imtehaz Heeralal (Mauritius) who was initially appointed as the referee for this encounter but “Technical reasons” forced a replacement.

The award-winning referee will be assisted by Zamani Thula Simelane (Eswatini) who will serve as the 1st Assistant Referee and his fellow countrymen Athenkosi Ndongeni, 2nd Assistant Referee and Eugine Mdluli who will take charge as the fourth official.
