The 39-year-old Angolan is part of the list of 69 selected assistants. It should be remembered that FIFA's choice is based on strict criteria, taking into account the performance of the referees in the competitions under the aegis of the body, which oversees world football.
Nine African assistants were also called: Zakhele Siwela, Mahmoud Abouelrega, Abdelhak Ethiali, Mokrane Gourari, Elvis Noupue, Agust Souru, Arsénio Marengule, Camera Djibril and El Hadji Samba.
The Angolan referee spoke to Angop from Nigeria, where he will be the first assistant this Friday in the Confederation Cup final, saying that he is happy with the appointment, but focused on today's mission.
He thus threw for his return to the country more reactions on this nomination to FIFA.
