“We Should Not Count On A Replay.” Broos Reveals His Ghana-Bafana Case Verdict.

The South African national team had earlier sought that a 2022 World Cup qualifier against Ghana be replayed after a contentious penalty deprived them a place in the African play-offs.

TV replays showed Ghana defender Daniel Amartey appearing to dive during the Group G decider on Sunday, resulting in a penalty that Andre Ayew converted to give Ghana a 1-0 win and top place in the group.

Ghana and South Africa finished even on points and goal differential, with the Black Stars taking first place in the section after scoring seven goals, one more than Bafana Bafana (The Boys) throughout the course of the six matches.

"We shouldn't put our faith in a replay." Broos reveals the outcome of the Ghana-Bafana case.

Hugo Broos has revealed what he believes will be the outcome of FIFA's inquiry into the Ghana-Bafana Bafana match, as the world waits to hear the results of the investigation.

The Belgian strategist has turned around the fortunes of the South African men's national football team, and the team is on the verge of finishing first in their FIFA World Cup qualification group after a disappointing start.

However, a contentious penalty in the last group encounter in Ghana resulted in Bafana being knocked out of the running for the title. Following the match, the South African Football Association (Safa) filed a formal protest, requesting that it be replayed.

The fact that Broos does not believe the verdict will be in South Africa's favor, though, is concerning.

Fifa held a meeting on Tuesday, according to him on HLN Sportcast.

"We anticipate making a decision within the course of next week." In the end, it is not only about the penalty kick, but about the entire game. The referee made a total of 71 rulings, 47 of which were deemed unfair. That has been demonstrated by the analysis. And we were on the losing end of 90 percent of those 47 incorrect decisions.

"Something like that has to be able to be proven in black and white," says the author. Was he bribed in any way? Wasn't he put under any pressure? Or was he just having a truly horrible day, as others have speculated? The numbers are there, but will they be sufficient for FIFA to meet their objectives?

"I personally believe that it will be resolved with a suspension for the referee and that we should not expect a replay."
