Were Orlando Pirates robbed by the referee in the Caf final? [See what happened]

Some Berkane supporters are furious because they believe the penalty kick should have been retaken after it was already taken. The kick was an indirect free kick.

The Soweto giants Orlando Pirates played RS Berkane in Nigeria Wednesday night in an attempt to end their trophy drought, but the match did not go as planned.

Despite holding a substantial edge in the championship game, Orlando Pirates were unable to prevail. Thembinkosi Lorch's missed penalty attempt in the shootout was the deciding factor in the team's defeat.

Following a foul in the danger zone during extra time, Berkane were awarded a penalty kick to take the lead.

Youssef El Fahli, the Moroccan striker, took the penalty kick, and before the ball entered the goal, a Berkane player was spotted loitering in the penalty area.

Fans of Orlando Pirates think that the penalty should have been retaken because, according to the rules of football, someone other than the penalty taker and goalie must be present in the penalty box when a penalty is taken. These supporters believe the legislation should have been adhered to.

The authentic snapshot appears as follows:
