Ghana Points out SAFA's Biggest Mistakes : Official Respond to FIFA

Ghana FA has officially responded to FIFA regarding SAFA's protest . They believe SAFA did not follow proper procedure when submitting their complaint to FIFA. They claim they were certain rules and regulations that were supposed to be followed but they were not followed.

They believe SAFA's complain was very weak to say the least. Ghana FA were quoting article 14(2) of the rules regulations of FIFA world cup qualifiers to back up their claims. Ghana FA believes SAFA made a big mistake as they were suppose to be quick in their protest against referee's decision by first complaining to the match commissioner at least within the first 2 hours after the game. However they failed to do so according to Ghana FA.

The football governing body in Ghana they believe SAFA failed to follow proper protocol therefore the protest should be considered invalid.

Due to the latest findings by Ghana they believe SAFA did not have good intentions while submitting the protest. Ghana FA wants FIFA to be slap SAFA with a heavy fine for bringing the FIFA world cup qualifiers into disrepute unnecessarily so.

Ghana FA have a strong believe that the protest was a hoax as it was not launched within time.

It seems like the war of words will continue between the two associations.

Many South Africans believe Ghana has been very defensive since this ordeal took place. They are of the view that Ghana should focus on whether the referee did the right thing or not at the end of the day, rather than focusing on SAFA, because SAFA launched a protest against the referee not Ghana FA.They have a right to protest. Ghana have painted a bad picture that SAFA is fighting GFA not action taken by the referee instead of welcoming the investigation and to find out exactly what happened.
