The Equatorial Guinean Football Federation (FEGUIFUT) presented on Monday evening, January 19, a letter of protest to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) regarding the goal scored by Emilio Nsue and that was annulled in the opening match against Congo Brazzaville, on Saturday, January 17.
The controversial goal scored by Emilio Nsue and that was annulled, on Saturday, January 17, during the opening match of the African Cup of Nations (CAN 2015), between the teams of Equatorial Guinea and Congo Brazzaville, has led the FEGUIFUT to react and protest.
The Federation considers that this goal was not scored in offside, and that the annulment is part of a planned action to complicate the passing of the Nzalang Nacional of Equatorial Guinea to the quarterfinals. This was explained by its newly appointed president, Andres Jorge Mbomio.
The FEGUIFUT staff examined videos and listened to sports analysts, concluding that this is an injustice and possibly a predetermined action of the referees. Therefore, in his letter he invites the CAF to correct these referees, to stop this behavior which, in his opinion, is not the first time that affects the national team of Equatorial Guinea.
