These days, I find it difficult to understand the Referee Associations in many countries of the world. I do not know their yardsticks for picking referees and their assistants but I do know that with an assistant referee like the one in the photo above, it would be an uphill task for even a Van Persie to know the location of an opponent’s goal post not to talk of scoring a goal. Haba, please have mercy on our male footballers! They are not all sterile! Some of them actually wear chin guards but with the way things are going now, they may be needing some other guards in order to be able to perform properly on the pitch.
