CAFCC: Gehad Greisha appointed for ESS vs FUS Rabat

Gehad Gerisha

Egyptian referee Gehad Greisha has been appointed to referee the group B opener between Étoile du Sahel and FUS Rabat.

The encounter in Sousse on the 28th of June is one of many highly-billed encounters in this season’s Confederation Cup; ESS are the reigning champions, whilst FUS won their first ever Moroccan Botola Pro by defeating MCO Oujda on Saturday.

It’s worth noting that Gehad Greisha was appointed to referee in the upcoming Rio Olympics in August, the only Egyptian referee chosen to officiate in the tournament.

Greisha became a FIFA referee in 2008, serving as a referee at the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, as well as both the 2013 and 2015 Africa Cup of Nations. He also officiated the third-place play-off at the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
