A football match referee was chased and beaten by female players during a match between Motema Pembe and Mazembe in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) Women's Football League.

The referee refused to award a penalty kick to the "Motema Pembe" team, which was behind in the match (1-5), which angered the team's players and the coaching staff, and chased and assaulted the referee.
