The president of South African football Association (SAFA) Danny Jordaan has revealed the next step in their protest against Ghana.
Ghana ended up winning three game by 1-0 by the controversial penalty that was awarded in the first half.
Last week the governing body, FIFA dismissed the protest of SAFA towards Ghana with claims that it did not meet the requirements.
However it seems like SAFA are not giving up on the case despite being dismissed by the governing body.
This comes after Jordaan confirmed that the CEO of SAFA Tebogo Motlanthe is still waiting for FIFA to give him the full ruling so that SAFA will consider options to appeal or not to appeal.
This comes after FIFA stated that their dismissal towards SAFA is subjected to an appeal.
"The CEO has already written a letter to FIFA to ask them for more information, because we had given them information," said Jordaan.
This comes after SAFA enlisted the services of an independent referee analyst Ace Ncobo to look into the game.
Ncobo compiled a 17-page report that proved that they referee was indeed biased.
He added that FIFA have not responded to the letter and the CEO did a follow up and they are currently waiting for the response with hopes that they will get it in the coming weeks.
Jordaan added that FIFA has to protect the integrity of their competition and believes that SAFA still have a strong case.
He added that they will wait for the response of the governing body.
As things stand Ghana have qualified for the playoffs of World Cup qualifiers and the Black Stars will be playing in two legged playoffs next year in March.
