Ghana's No. 1

Former Cameroon international disappointed with officiating in Ghana win against South Africa

Published on: 22 November 2021

Former Cameroon international Roger Feutmba expressed disappointment with officiating in the 2022 World Cup qualifying match between Ghana and South Africa. 

Andre Ayew scored a first-half penalty to secure a 1-0 win for Ghana and advance to the final round of the qualifiers at the expense of South Africa.

The penalty won by Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey has been described by South Africans as dubious and they have been backed by Feutmba who spent the majority of his playing career in the rainbow nation.

"It was such a disappointment. I was so upset and feel sad for African football. I don't understand how a referee can give such penalty," Feutmba told the Siya crew.

"It is disappointing to see these things happening in Africa and the player should have been given a yellow card for simulation. It is very hard to grow our football on the continent if we keep having such stupid decisions that kill our football."

"I hope CAF does something, it was embarrassing and I couldn't even finish the game because I was embarrassed by what happened. They did South Africa a dirty and it was shocking, especially at this level of football."

South Africa FA has lodged a formal complaint at FIFA, seeking a replay as they believe the match was manipulated in Ghana’s favour by match officials led by Senegalese referee Maguette N'Diaye.
