The South African Football Association (SAFA) is expected to lodge a formal complaint with the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) about their dissatisfaction with the officiating in the 2022 World Cup qualifier between Bafana Bafana and Ghana on Sunday.
This has been confirmed by Chief Executive, Tebogo Motlanthe. Bafana Bafana lost 1-0 to the West Africans to end their Qatar dreams.
Ghana’s goal was scored after a dubious penalty decision by the referee which SAFA is requesting CAF and FIFA to investigate.
“Match officials decided the game which is not supposed to happen so as the association we have decided that we will be writing to both CAF and FIFA to investigate how the game was handled and also challenge some of the decisions,” says Motlanthe.
