Ghana’s Daniel Laryea to officiate World Cup qualifier between Tunisia and Equatorial Guinea
Ghana’s Daniel Laryea will be the centre referee for next month’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying match between Tunisia and Equatorial Guinea.
Daniel Laryea, Ghana’s number one referee in the last few years, will have his compatriot Kwasi Brobbey Acheampong as Assistant II, Ayimavo Aymar Ulrich Eric and Ligali Adissa Abdul Raphiou, both from Benin will be Assistant I and Fourth referee respectively.
This is not the first time the 34-year-old will be officiating a high profile match on the continent, having handled several international matches, including the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Libya and Niger, the CAF Champions League game between Mamelodi Sundowns and Al Ahly, among many others.
However, this assignment will be the first time he is officiating a World Cup qualifying game, and he expects to be given more games during the qualifiers.
The Group B tie comes off at the Olympic Stadium in Rades on Friday, September 3, 2021, at 20:00 GMT.
Laryea was in charge of most top matches in the local scene last season, officiating the Hearts versus Kotoko match in the second half of the season and the MTN FA cup final between Hearts and AshantiGold SC.
Meanwhile, Ghana’s referee manager Alexander Neequaye Kotey has been selected as Referee Assessor for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier between Mali and Rwanda.
