It's Not Over: SAFA Insulted Us - Ghana FA To Take SA's Complaint Matter Further

Ghana Football Association is reportedly planning on filling a lawsuit against the South African Football Association after the Federation of International Football Association dismissed SAFA's complaint against the Senegalese referee Maguette Ndiaye who was in charge when South Africa lost the FIFA world Cup qualifier game to the Black Stars, they felt the referee's decisions were not fair and they took the matter up to the world football governing body hoping for a Replay, but their crimes fell to deaf ears.

Reports emerging suggests that the GFA has decided to take the matter further since they feel they were insulted as an Association by all allegations the South Africans made after losing that game.

According to reports, the GFA communications director, Asante Twum has revealedthat they are planning to take the matter further once FIFA releases a full Verdict after they an ounced a couple of days that the South African Football Association's complaint is admisble and threw their complaint out the window.

"The protest which was filed by South Africa had no grounds/legs to stand on. There were other details that the disciplinary committee will release hopefully. When we receive that full verdict, that will inform us with regards to the next plan of action. Because aside the protest, we felt that the name of the FA was battered and badly bruised by the South Africans. The insults and the castigations and allegations that were made against us, we felt were unfounded and frivolous," he said according to reports.

Bafana Bafana were on top of the Group throughout the entire qualifiers until they were dethroned on the last day, when it mattered the most, they lost the only game and missed out on going through to the final play-offs, they have aloso missed out on the AFCON since they didn’t qualify, they will miss out on both the world Cup and the AFCON in 2022.
