Daniel Laryea

Daniel Laryea, has been selected by Confederation of African Football as the only Ghanaian centre referee, for the 2019 AFCON  in Egypt.

The 32-year-old will join the elite referees for a pre-AFCON seminar in Morocco.

He was last year selected for the CHAN tournament in Morocco.

Laryea in 2004 was the youngest referee to officiate a Ghana Premier League game at 24 years.

The FIFA badge referee started his international career in 2014 and have been on the ascendancy as far as progression is concerned.

In the midst of corruption allegations against referees in the country, it appears CAF still considers him amongst top referees on the continent and he has been appointed to officiate in the prestigious African tournament.
