CAF Selects Two Liberian Referees for Men’s U-20 AFCON

Two Liberian referees Hassan Corneh and Joel Doe have been selected by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to serve as match officials for the 2023 TotalEnergies U20 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Referee Corneh and assistant referee Doe were selected after successfully completing a preparatory course involving physical and theoretical tests as well as practical training for the tournament.

The duo left Monrovia for Cairo on 12 February after they were preselected by the CAF on 17 January.

This brings to three, the total number of Liberians who will be serving at the international youth tournament.

Former FIFA-badge referee George Rogers is currently in Cairo to serve as an Assistant General Coordinator (AGC) for the tournament.

Rogers will serve as AGC in the opening match when hosts Egypt take on Mozambique on Sunday 19 February at the Cairo International Stadium.

This year’s TotalEnergies U20 Africa Cup of Nations which will be the 17th edition of the biennial African international youth football tournament organized by the CAF, will run from 19 February to 11 March 2023 in the cities of Cairo, Alexandria and Ismailia.
