Ncobo have shared insight on the FIFA postponement.
Ace Ncobo, a legendary South African referee, has highlighted the apparent delay by FIFA in evaluating the complaint submitted by the South African Football Association (SAFA) surrounding the Bafana Bafana and Ghana dispute.
The entire country of South Africa is waiting with expectation for FIFA to make a decision on the World Cup Group G qualification that took place in Ghana earlier this month.
The South African Football Association (SAFA) has launched an official complaint against Senegalese referee Maguette Ndiaye, citing a lack of professionalism in her refereeing and the possibility of match manipulation.
"It was our own fault that we put ourselves into this mess," Ncobo says to the source.
"Because FIFA never stated that the decision would be announced on the 23rd, all FIFA stated was that "on the 20th, South Africa and Ghana must submit all of their documentation."
"Then, on the 23rd, the investigation will be referred to the disciplinary committee," the statement continued.
Therefore, there was never a timeline set to indicate that the disciplinary committee's investigation would come to a close on a specified date.
Due to the fact that the process is complex, new information was constantly being received. As a result, I believe we should give FIFA the space and time it needs to complete its inquiry without being pressed."
Afterwards, the SAFA acknowledged that it had contained charges that a Ghana Football Association official is claimed to have traveled from Ghana to Senegal ahead to the Group G match, which might serve as evidence of bribery.
