Mauritania President Orders for a Penalty Shootout In The Middle Of Final Soccer Match because He was Bored?

The president of Mauritania allegedly abused his power by ordering a penalty shootout during his country’s Super Cup final… in the 63rd minute. 

It’s reported Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz was so bored in the stands as FC Tevragh-Zeina battled ACS Ksar, that he requested the referee stop the match and settle it with spot-kicks.
Tevragh-Zeina won the farce shootout, but it was a victory overshadowed by outrage. The Mauritanian federation’s president, Ahmed Ould Abderrahmane, later released a statement in which he tried to shift the blame to “organisational issues”.

He said: “I deny in the strongest terms the intervention of the President of the Republic.The decision was made due to organizational issues in accordance with the presidents and the coaches of the two teams.”
