GFA President – Ghana Should’ve Had More Penalties

Ghana Football Association president Kurt Okraku has insisted that his side should have received even more penalties than just the one they got against South Africa.

Okraku, as well as the GFA have come out guns blazing, as they feel the protest of the South African Football Association and the way it was communicated has tarnished the image of Ghanaian football.

While no accusations were publicly made against Ghana, with South Africa only accusing the Senegalese match official of match-manipulation and match-fixing, Okraku and the GFA clearly felt attacked and didn’t mince their words in their response.

“It is important that Danny (Jordaan) is honest to accept that on the day over the length of the competition, the Black Stars were by far the best team in the group,” he said, as cited by MyJoyOnline.

“The Black Stars dominated the Bafana Bafana. Mother God was so good to South Africa on that day because you could see so clearly the number of goals that should have entered the net, the number of penalty appeals that should have been taken by the referee for Ghana.

“South Africa must not be bad losers, they must not be sore losers. They must understand that they didn’t plan enough, they didn’t play well enough. They didn’t win enough games for which reason they were not good enough against the Black Stars.

“They were not confident in themselves. Haven’t we heard quotations from their head coach? Haven’t we? Did South Africa not play against Zimbabwe when they should have scored 4-0 to be comfortable in Ghana, when they know they have never won here?”

The GFA confirmed they will submit their own documents to FIFA by 20 November in order for the FIFA DC to look into the matter on 23 November.
