Ghana's No. 1

Ghana's full response to FIFA on protest made by SAFA

Published on: 23 November 2021

The Ghana Football Association in another strongly worded statement have responded to Fifa over the allegations and protest made by the South Africa FA after their defeat to the Black Stars in the World Cup qualifier game in Cape Coast.

The Ghana Football Association  responded to allegations of match-fixing claims made by the CEO of the South African Football, Tebogo Motlanthe and SAFA president Danny Jordan.

In the last couple of days, authorities within Ghana Football and South African football have been engaged in a war of words after the Black Stars beat Bafana Bafana 1-0 in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers Group G final game.

A penalty awarded to Ghana after Daniel Amartey was fouled in the box and which was converted by Andre Ayew has irked the South Africans who say the game was manipulated by the referee.

SAFA later complained to FIFA, with the football governing body telling the GFA to make a response to the allegation by close of the day Saturday, November 20.

The Ghana FA has  accused SAFA of blatantly disregarding the rules of protest after the game and called on FIFA to dismiss the frivolous claims.

The GFA is also urging FIFA to impose a huge fine on SAFA for bringing the World Cup brand and the reputation of the Blak into disrepute.
