SAFA has filed a formal complaint against referee Maguette N'Diaye for allegedly rigging the match against Bafana Bafana during their important World Cup qualifier against Ghana.
According to iDiskiTimes, Broos is convinced that the officiating was prejudiced.
"It's about the entire game, not just the penalty kick." There were 71 decisions made by the referee, 47 of which were fouls. That is what the research has revealed. And, according to Broos, 90 percent of those 47 bad decisions were against us.
"Something like that has to be able to be proven in black and white." Was he bribed in any way? Wasn't he under duress? Or was he simply having a bad day? Broos questioned whether the figures were sufficient for FIFA.
Broos, on the other hand, believes that Bafana will not be given a rematch, but that the referee would face a punishment.
"I strongly believe that the referee will be suspended, and that we should not expect a replay," Broos said.
As we wait for FIFA's judgment, let's hope Broos is wrong.
Bafana Bafana has a strong case, which has strengthened as new evidence has emerged.
