World Cup 2018 Referee Fahad Al-Mirdasi Under Investigation By Saudi FA


Referee, Fahad Al-Mirdasi selected for the World Cup is being investigated by Saudi Arabian authorities, the nation’s football association has said.
Fahad Al-Mirdasi, one of 36 referees chosen by FIFA for Russia, was replaced by English whistler Mark Clattenberg for the King’s Cup final between Al-Ittihad and Al-Faisaly on Sunday.
The Saudi Arabian Football Federation said on its Twitter account that Al-Mirdasi was under “administrative investigation” but did not specify the nature of the probe.
Al-Mirdasi was selected for last year’s Confederations Cup in Russia, a warmup for the June 14-July 15 World Cup.
He oversaw the third-place game between Mexico and Portugal where two penalties were awarded, two players were sent off in extra time and Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio was also dismissed.
Al Mirdasi was also a referee at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
