Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Junior Khanye is confident Ghana will beat South Africa by more goals if FIFA orders a replay of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
Bafana Bafana lost 1-0 courtesy of Andre Ayew’s first-half penalty at the Cape Coast stadium.
The defeat stole the headlines worldwide as the South African Football Association lodged an official complaint with FIFA regarding inconsistent match officiating by Senegalese referee Maguette Ndiaye.
The verdict is expected to be announced in the coming weeks, with SAFA hoping that Bafana Bafana can replay the Group G fixture against the Black Stars.
But Khanye writing in his column for the iDiski Times said, “If the match was ordered by FIFA to be replayed, I think Ghana would win it again, by more goals this time around.”
“I don’t know if Hugo Broos thinks he is trying to prove a point by omitting players who deserve to play in the national team. You cannot tell me that Andile Jali and Lyle Lakay are not good enough to play for the national team.
“If we have the same approach, I think Ghana will defeat Bafana Bafana again in a replay situation. They had more threatening chances in the game we played.”
