Cristiano Ronaldo was ruled to have been brought down in the box by Mohammed Salisu, although replays showed that the Ghanaian got a touch on the ball.
Ronaldo scored the penalty to give Portugal the lead but an intriguing final 17 minutes saw the Portuguese edge the game with the odd goal in five.
Speaking on SuperSport after the game, Gyan said he believed the “penalty was soft”, adding that he could “not understand why the referee did not go and check the screen.”
Ghana’s all-time goalscorer isn’t the only pundit who was surprised by the referee’s call.
The Premier League’s all-time goalscorer, Alan Shearer was also emphatic in his stance that the penalty should not have been given.
