Ghanaian referee

Ghanaian referee, Charles Bulu, collapsed while officiating the African Cup of Nations qualifier between Ivory Coast and Ethiopia, can report

The referee collapsed in the 80th minute of the encounter forcing the game to be called off with the home side leading 3-1.


Bulu was the man in charge when the two teams played in their ultimate Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier in Group K.

The fourth official who was expected to replace Charles Bulu is an Ivorian and prevented a conflict of interest. As a result, the match had to be called off with ten minutes left to be played.
