Ghana's No. 1

SAFA's claims calculated to divert attention from their own failures - Ghana FA

Published on: 18 November 2021


The Ghana Football Association (GFA) says claims made by the South Africa Football Association (SAFA) after their defeat to the Black Stars is just a diversionary tactic to shift the failures of the Association.

SAFA have made unsubstantiated claims after the game from poor officiating, unsporting behavior, betting among others after the defeat to Ghana in the final group game of the 2022 World Cup qualifier at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

SAFA has lodged a complaint to FIFA to begin investigations into the matter with the world football governing responding to that effect.

The Ghana FA in a statement released stated emphatically the claims from the SAFA is just to shift attention from their failures and incompetence.

“It is shocking, irresponsible, and outright disrespectful to note that our colleagues from South Africa Football Association (with whom we have good relationships with and mutual sporting respect) have chosen to spread falsehoods to the media rather than project the real picture of events before, during and after the game.

“We wish to state categorically that the allegations are frivolous, baseless and lacks merits and should be treated with all the contempt that it deserves. These allegations from South Africa Football Association are nothing but a planned scheme and a calculated attempt to shift focus from the defeat, divert attention from their failure to qualify for the play-offs and unjustly dent the hard-earned victory of the Black Stars.

The Ghana FA indicated it will collaborate with FIFA on the matter in investigating the matter.

“We wish to state that we have received correspondence from FIFA and would respond appropriately within the ambit of the FIFA Regulations”.
