Codjia is one of the 38 preselected referees for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Coffi Codjia refereed the Algeria v Egypt match in the 2010 African Cup of Nations. A total of three red cards were handed out to Algerian players. After the game, CAF decided to ban Coffi for failing to give out a red card for Algerian goalkeeper, Faouzi Chaouchi, when he head butted the referee. Chaouchi was furious with Coffi's call for an Egyptian penalty kick and confronted the referee and appeared to head butt him. Coffi showed Chaouchi only a yellow card for his behavior. However, Chaouchi eventually was sent off near the end of the match for his second yellow card.
