The result effectively ended Ghana's chances of qualifying for Russia.

He will act as the center referee for the game and he will be assisted by his compatriot Yamen Malloulchi who will be the Assistant Referee One.

Egyptian Ahmed Hossameldin Taha Ibrahim will be Assistant Two and his countryman Amin Mohamed Omar has been named as the fourth official.

Manuel Irenio Lopes Nascimento from Guinea Bissau as the Match Commissioner.

General Coordinator for the match is Titus Haimbili Kunamuene from Namibia.

The match is scheduled to kick off at 8 pm at the Ismailia Stadium after African Champions Cameroon play Guinea Bissau earlier on Tuesday.
