Mauritian referee Rajindraparsad Seechurn has been appointed to take charge of Ghana’s quarter-final clash with Cape Verde at Africa Cup of Nations on Saturday.

The 42-year-old, who courted controversy during Ivory Coast’s 3-0 win over Tunisia at the ongoing tournament in South Africa, will handle the game in Port Elizabeth.

The Elephants should also have been awarded a penalty toward the end of the first half when Tunisia captain Khalil Chammam handled the ball in the 18-yard area but referee Rajindraparsad Seechurn of Mauritius waved away their appeals.

But the good news for Ghana is that Seechurn does not hesitate to issue yellow cards as he has so far issued 15 yellows in the five matches he has handled at the Africa Cup of Nations since 2010.

With the Black Stars coming up the physical Cape Verdians, the referee’s cautions will come in handy to prevent the Blue Sharks from bullying the Black Stars into submission.

He is also known to have a good heart as he stopped the game in the 32nd minute to give players a minute’s water break to recharge.

He started his career in 1996 and reached the first grade for referees in 2001.

He has also taken charge of matches for the African Federation and since 2003 he has been an international judge.

In 2010 he was selected to be a referee for the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time.
