South African referee Victor Gomes will no longer take charge of the 2019 Afcon final between Senegal and Algeria after Caf confirmed a new match official.

Alioum Alioum from Cameroon is now set to referee the final set to be played in Cairo on Friday night.

He will be assisted by his compatriots Evarist Menkouande and Elvis Guy Noupue Nguegoue.

It’s unclear why Caf has made the change.

The South Africa Football Association (SAFA) had confirmed Gomes’ appointment through a congratulatory statement on Social Media on Wednesday but the post has since been removed.
