The pill has not passed. After a nice 1-0 victory in Cameroon, Algeria thought they could qualify for the World Cup when Touba equalized in the 118th minute of the return leg. It was without counting on the good resistance of the Cameroonians who again found the error via Toko Ekambi (124th), to conclude a meeting marked by many facts of disputed arbitrations. There was a major misunderstanding on the part of the Fennecs who decided to appeal to FIFA. The body that controls world football will investigate this on April 21. For the final decision, here are the four possibilities.

  • FIFA finds insufficient evidence and/or does not find errors intriguing

After examining the match, the arbitration conditions and the referees themselves, FIFA has not found any particular deviation. This would logically lead to a layoff and Cameroon would go to the World Cup in Qatar, the Algerians stay at home.

  • FIFA thinks the mistakes are too big

After examining the match, the refereeing circumstances and the referees themselves, FIFA believes that the refereeing errors were too great to completely distort the outcome of the match. If this decision is made, the return leg can be replayed and the place in the World Cup can be brought into play.

  • FIFA raises suspicions about match referee

That happened in 2017 during a match between Senegal and South Africa in the play-offs of the World Cup. The Senegalese were defeated in South Africa in November 2016 by a score of 2-1 with a totally imaginary penalty whistled by Joseph Lamptey, the referee, and subsequently banned for life. At the time, he was suspected of being involved in a gambling scandal, but FIFA has never given an official reason. If the same situation happens again, the match would definitely be played again under similar circumstances.

  • FIFA reports corruption around referee

FIFA, after investigating the match, the arbitration conditions and the referees themselves discovered corruption related to the arbitration of the clash. In this case, the match could go straight to the Algerians with a green carpet win. The Fennecs would therefore qualify for the next World Cup instead of Cameroon.

to summarize

FIFA will have to consider the appeal of Algeria, which wants to replay its lost match against Cameroon. Discover the possible outcomes of this request, Algeria hopes to at least be able to play this meeting against Cameroon again.
