2026 WCQ: Mauritanian Aziz Bouh to officiate Comoros-Ghana match

Mauritanian referee Abdel Aziz Mohamed Bouh will be in charge when Ghana travel to face Comoros in the African qualifiers for the 2026 Fifa World Cup.

The fixture is slated to take place on Tuesday, November 21, at the Moroni Stadium, with kickoff scheduled for 19:00 GMT. It marks the second outing for both teams in Group I of the qualifying campaign for the Mundial, set to be co-hosted by Canada, Mexico, and the USA.

In their quest for World Cup glory, both Ghana and Comoros will vie for supremacy in this encounter, which holds significant implications for their qualification aspirations in the tournament set to be jointly hosted by Canada, Mexico, and the United States.

Manning the sidelines alongside Bouh are his compatriots, with Diba Hamedine (Assistant Referee 1), Youssef Mohamed Mahmoud (Assistant Referee 2), and Diou Moussa Alassane (Fourth Official) forming the all-Mauritanian officiating team entrusted with ensuring a fair and competitive contest.

Jérôme Efong Nzolo from Gabon has been designated as the Referee Assessor, while William Makinati Shongwe from Eswatini will assume the role of Match Commissioner.

Bouh’s selection for this prestigious assignment follows his commendable performance at this year’s Fifa U-20 World Cup in Argentina, where he presided over six matches, including the opening game featuring the hosts and Uzbekistan.

The 31-year-old also boasts a noteworthy feat, having presided over the U-20 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) final two years ago in Mauritania. On that occasion, Ghana triumphed over Uganda to secure the coveted championship title.

Before locking horns with Comoros, the Black Stars are set to square off against Madagascar for their opening match in the World Cup qualifying on November 17 in Kumasi.
