FIFA has appointed controversial Zimbabwean referee Norman Matemera to officiate Ghana's 2018 World qualifying match against Comoros to be played on November 13.

Matemera will be assisted by compatriots Tapfumanei Mutengwa and Salani Ncube in the assistant 1 and assistant 2 roles respectively.

Ruzive Ruzive, who is also not new to match officiating controversies, will be the reserve referee whiles Yigzaw Ambaw Bezuayehu from Ethiopia will be the referee assessor.

FIFA has also appointed Ismael Locate from France as Match Commissioner for the game.

The match has been scheduled for the Stade Said Mohammed Cheikh in Moroni with kick off time at 3:00pm (local time).

The return leg will be played on November 17 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

Matemera was in the eye of a big storm last November in the Chibuku Super Cup final between FC Platinum and Harare City at Mandava Stadium which ended 1-1 after extra time and the Zvishavane side triumphed in the penalty shootout.

Platinum’s Walter Musona scrambled home a late equaliser, four minutes into Matemera’s added time which City claimed had not crossed the line.

The Harare side was also not happy with the build-up to the goal which also included a free-kick which was supposed to have been given to the municipal side.

Two seasons ago, Matemera added three more minutes, in addition to the four minutes he had put up during the Highlanders-Dynamos match when the Bulawayo side was leading 1-0 at Rufaro.

Dynamos equalised in the added time to steal a point.

Recently, Ruzive was expelled from officiating at the Cosafa Cup for controversial refereeing in the match between Madagascar and Swaziland.
