Bafana isn't finished yet! After receiving the heartbreaking news that their appeal had been denied by FIFA, SAFA has remained calm and optimistic.
"All they said was that our appeal was inadmissible in a one-liner." We'll continue to discuss options and create a response. "For the time being, that is all FIFA has indicated in their reaction today," Motlanthe remarked.
After days of investigation and hours of labour, Motlanthe is not going to accept a one-liner.
He's on the lookout for a way ahead and is working on a response to FIFA. South Africa's hopes are not completely dashed, since SAFA has the option to appeal the decision.
"The Disciplinary Committee found South Africa's protest inadmissible because it did not meet the standards set out in art. 46 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code and art. 14 of the Regulations of the FIFA World Cup 2022 Preliminary Competition," the statement reads.
A FIFA spokesperson declared, "The judgment is susceptible to appeal."According to iDiskiTimes, FIFA has rejected SAFA and Bafana's appeal.
SAFA, on the other hand, has the right to appeal the ruling.
