The Libyan Football Federation has written to FIFA demanding that their last year’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Tunisia be replayed because the referee’s wife is Tunisian and showed open bias against them.

The Libyan football authorities also alleged that the Kenyan referee also lives in the North African country and these factors could have conspired to help the Tunisians defeat them in the qualifier.

The refereeing of the match, held on 11 November 2016, was controversial, with an early Libyan goal being wrongly disallowed for off-side.
