The Ghana Football Association has been fined US$10,000 by CAF after a pitch invader distrusted the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa last November. 

The 25-year old Awal Suleman  run onto the pitch at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium in the 84th minute as the Black Stars went on to beat the Bafana Bafana 2-0.

Suleman, a former 400m runner, was granted bail after spending two days in Police custody.

He was later arraigned and fined a sum of GHc2,400 by the Cape Coast Circuit court

Ghana FA General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo is quoted as saying: "There is a need for lovers of our national teams to behave appropriately within the laws of game.

''This is really important because our actions have consequences for the GFA and the State at large.

''We will continue to educate the patrons of the game but there will be mechanisms to ensure that fans who cause the Nation to lose money in this manner are brought to book."
