Ghana national team captain Andre Ayew has reacted to claims that the black stars dubiously qualified to the final round of the Qatar World cup Qualifiers following a crucial penalty awarded to them by Senegalese referee Maguette Ndiaye.
The Ghanian skipper who made his 100th appearance for Ghana last night says, Ghana won fair and square.
“We won fair and square. I think we had more clear chances. It was a tough game, South Africa came and they did their job but we won this game fair and square-Andre Ayew
Ayew adds that, Ghana would have scored more goals and that the penalty was a clear penalty , the referee did not make any mistake to award it to them.
“We could have scored more. I think the penalty was a clear penalty, and I think it was the other way around, the referee should have given two penalties [during the match].”
South Africa only needed a point to qualify to the final round of the qualifers while Ghana needed nothing less than a win.
Meanwhile , the south African football federation says it will file a complaint to FIFA and CAF to investigate the officiating of the match which ended their world cup contest last night in Kumasi.
Ghana beat South Africa 1-0 to proceed to the final round with goal difference advantage ahead of bafana banana who they are level with on 13 points in Group G.
One thought on “FORGET: That was a clear penalty, we won fairly-Ayew”
I think it was not about the penalty only also the ground was horrible for any nation to play on that pitch, clearly referee wanted South Africa out of the tournament, anyone who was watching that match could see before the penalty that referee was up to something, it was a matter of time before he showed us his true colours on that game, fifa must do something to stop something like this to happen in the future honestly its unacceptable
