Sydney: A top Iranian official yesterday called for a life ban for Australian referee Ben Williams after a bungling display in their 6-7 Asian Cup quarter-final loss to Iraq.

Delegation chief Houshang Moghaddas said Iran would lodge a formal complaint against Williams following the dismissal of their protest that Iraq had fielded an ineligible player.

"This referee must be suspended for life."
