“In the 76th minute, the central referee awarded a controversial penalty to Luawa. A decision that left onlookers and other football stakeholders baffled as to how the official could have determined that it was inside the box in a pitch filled with water and all lines erased”, he noted.

“Kamboi Eagles players questioned the referee’s decision before fans stormed the pitch and stopped the match from continuing”.
