Liberia footballer Alakanideh Omega is likely to find himself in hot water after he confronted and tried to attack a referee during his country’s 1-0 defeat against Uganda on Saturday.

Omega confronted referee Adam Cordier in Kampala after the final whistle had gone to protest a defeat which leaves his side rock bottom in Group J of the African qualification section for the 2014 World Cup.

It wasn’t long before tempers frayed and the Libera player tried to get at the ref, with players and then soldiers entering the pitch to try and separate the pair.
