Mauritania President Orders Cup Final To Go On Penalties In 63rd Minute As He Was Getting Bored

0

Mauritania President, Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, reportedly ordered the country’s cup final to go to a penalty shootout in the 63rd minute, because  the match was becoming a source of boredom.

Mohamed, who presides over Mauritania, north Africa, was at the Super Cup match between FC Tevragh-Zeina and ACS Ksar.

Gazzetta reports has it that Aziz wasn’t enjoying the fixture, and 63 minutes in, with the scores locked at 1-1, he ordered penalties to be taken.

It’s claimed he was unhappy with the tempo of the match and didn’t want to risk the fixture going to extra-time and dragging on.

The match was won by Tevragh-Zeina on spot kicks, but Ksar fans were left fuming and since complained to the country’s FA – but they have not been favourably replied.
