FIFA World Cup

Ace Ncobo slams Senegalese Referee Maguette Ndiaye.

Bafana Bafana's humiliation by Ghana: Ace "VAR" Ncobo, a veteran Fifa official who currently works as a television commentator, has disclosed some incriminating facts surrounding the disputed officiating decisions that were made throughout Bafana Bafana's humiliation. 


On Sunday, South Africa was knocked out of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers after a 1-0 loss to Ghana, which was decided by a contentious penalty converted by Black Stars squadron leader Andre Ayew.


The judgment to grant Ghana a punishment following Rushine De Reuck's being assessed to have already snubbed Daniel Amartey in the area, despite footage suggesting there was absolutely no contact between the multiple players, was widely criticized by Senegalese official Maguette Ndiaye.


On Monday, Ncobo criticized N'Diaye's judgement call on SuperSport TV and then said he analyzed the event's tape before submitting a complaint to Safa.


"Just the first half required me five hours and seventeen minutes to analyze," Ncobo stated on SuperSport's Extra Time broadcast.



Because I received the tape this morning, I'm only performing the second half tomorrow.Exploitation of a contest is discussed in length in Article 18 of the FIFA discipline rules.


Numerous people seem to believe that you can simply write to FIFA and declare, 'No, this official was bad, so let's replay the game.' No, it doesn't operate that way; you have to show that the match's outcome was tampered with. "


"Then how would you distinguish weak performance from tampering?" he asked. "This is what I encountered when I only looked at the first half of the match."


Bafana was found guilty in 25 out of the 28 decisions she made. In 89.3 percent of bad decisions, the correct decision is missed.Only 10.7% of the wrong decisions were made in favor of the local team [Ghana].


A leg that the South African Football Association can depend on is that there is a structure of prejudice, and once you can prove that there is indeed a structure, that is a foot on which SAFA can rest. You can demonstrate that the outcome was tampered with. " Ace Ngcobo has been introduced to the mix.
