Thanks to a goal from Ahmed Tauba in the 118th minute during the play-off match against Cameroon, Algeria thought they had qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. But in the last second, Karl Toko-Ekambi qualified the indomitable Lions.

Weeks pass but the mediation of Bakery Gassama among the Algerians is still not digested. During an interview aimed at announcing his reappointment as head of the national team, coach Jamel Belmady made a new rant, declaring that “we will never see a referee like this hurt a country again.” ” Words that the former Ligue 1 referee, Tony Chaprone, do not have.

The Canal+ consultant, who has led 433 professional matches, said Belmadi’s comments should not be spared: “What he says is very serious. He should be suspended for some time.” Pointing out that some of the Algerian words are “clearly a call to violence”.

“Belmady is mediocre”

If the crazy scenario of the meeting didn’t turn out to Fenex’s advantage, Chapron believes the latter lost his chances of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup alone: ​​”If the Algerians don’t go to the World Cup, their Passes are only themselves to blame. When you score a goal in the 118th minute in a play-off match and you lose, ask yourself the question. They are responsible eliminations and not the referees.”
