FIFA, the world’s football governing body, is currently reviewing a formal appeal by the South African Football Association for a replay of their match against Ghana.

According to Tebogo Mothlante, the Chief Executive of the South African FA, the referee has made a series of “questionable decisions” in the match against the Black Stars of Ghana at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

“We feel very much robbed because it is not an isolated incident of a penalty. There are just a lot of questionable decisions by match officials and we will get an expert to dissect other incidents, so we can make a strong case,” Mr. Tebogo Mothlante further stated.

However, FIFA has confirmed the fact that the South African Football Association have lodged a formal complaint, demanding a replay of the match.

The world’s football governing body also indicated that they are reviewing South Africa’s appeal.

This comes after Ghana’s Daniel Amartey went down in the South Africa box after minimal contact from defender Rushine de Reuck.

The referee, Maguette Ndiaye, awarded a penalty, which Andre Dede Ayew easily scored to send Ghana to the playoffs of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
