FIFA reject Algeria’s call to replay World Cup playoff

Algeria’s desperate bid to have their World Cup playoff with Cameroon replayed has been rejected by the competition organisers Fifa, the Algerian Football Federation said on Saturday.

Algeria won the first leg of the playoff 1-0 in March but were beaten 2-1 in the return leg to miss out on one of the five berths at the finals for African nations.

The Algerian federation claimed the refereeing of the second tie by Gambian Bakary Gassama was “scandalous” while the Fifa referees committee rejected this view.

“The referees decisions had no negative influence,” Fifa said.
