The controversial Egyptian referee, Gehad Grisha has been chosen as the match official for the Africa Cup of Nations third place meeting between Tunisia and Nigeria.

The Confederation of African Football, CAF, had initially decided to suspend the Egyptian referee for six months, following his poor handling of the champions league first-leg final between Esperance and Wydad Casablanca, before the decision was overturned.

Grisha will be assisted by fellow Egyptian Mahmoud Ahmed Kamal and Issa Yaya from Chad, while Joshua Bondo will act as fourth Official.

The 43-year-old referee was in action when Kenya locked horns with Senegal in the group stages.
