Ghana, South Africa Game to be Replayed? Petition to FIFA & CAF By South African FA In Pipeline



The South African Football Association (SAFA) has made clear its intention to file an official complaint with world football governing body FIFA as well as continental counterpart CAF for a replay of the 1-0 defeat to Ghana in Cape Coast on Sunday, November 14.

According to the Chief Executive Officer of SAFA, Tebogo Motlanthe, there were many infractions in the game on the part of the match officials.

“I think from our hearts is to say the match officials have decided the game which is not what is supposed to happen,” he told South African journalists prior to the team’s departure on Monday, November 15.

“So, we as the Association have decided that we will be writing to both CAF and FIFA first to investigate how the game had ended and secondly to also challenge some of these decisions.”

The Black Stars of Ghana beat South Africa by a lone goal to qualify for the play offs of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
