Orlando Pirates' important game to be Officiated by the Controversial Ref.

Should things go their way Orlando Pirates are only 90 minutes away from being crowned CAF Confederations Cup Champions. The Soweto giants have run a successful and impressive campaign in the continental Confederations Cup. 

The South African team is now holding the hopes of all South Africans for a continental medal after Mamelodi Sundowns were eliminated in CAF championship. However the remaining 90 minutes of the final game might seem like a whole year to the bucaneers.

Pirates will be facing the unpopular Moroccan club RS Berkane on Friday in Nigeria. However their game might come out with some little drama as it will be officiated by the controversial Janny Sikazwe

Sikazwe became popular after committing unbelievable and historically the worst blunders in football by ending a game on 85 minutes. The Zambian ref went on to end the game prematurely again 13 seconds before the 90th minute. Hopefully the match will end at 90 minutes this time around and the champions will celebrate a fair win.

According to reports the prize money for this season’s champions is nothing less than $1.3 million, which is R20 million. Should the bucaneers win this, it will be the biggest price they have ever won in their history.
