Angola Presents Protest to CAF

Port Elizabeth — Angola has handed a protest after the match against South Africa over alleged mistakes made by refereeing team, during the second round of Group A of the African Cup of the Nations (CAN2013), underway in South Africa.

Angola alleges that in the second half of the competition the referee authorised the replacement of a South African player, but ignored the Angolan side, and the game started with only 10 Angolans athletes.

The match took place in Mandela Bay Stadium last Wednesday and ended with South African 2-0 win.

Angola rank last in the group A with one point.

Angola will face Cape Verde this Sunday and South Africans against Morocco at 07:00 pm, at Port Elizabeth and Durban, respectively.
