The South African Football Association have demanded that the FIFA World Cup Qualifier played against Ghana on Sunday, November 14th, 2021 should be replayed.
Leicester City defender, Daniel Amartey dived in South Africa’s penalty area to earn his team a penalty which eventually was the winning goal for the Black Stars of Ghana.
According to reports from Times Live, the chief executive of the South African Football Association, Tebogo Mothlante blasted the referee in a postmatch conference after the game.
A similar incident occurred during the 2018 World Cup qualifying game which involved South Africa and Senegal where a penalty was awarded to the rainbow nation. An appeal was written to FIFA and the match was replayed.
Ghana and South Africa both finished on the same points and same goal difference but the West Africans qualified to the next phase on the number of goals scored.
