Ghana’s qualification for the 2022 World Cup play-offs was guaranteed on Friday after FIFA dismissed South Africa’s appeal on their November defeat to the Black Stars.
It’s Good news for Ghana and Sad news for the Bafana Bafana’s as FIFA rejects South Africa’s complaint against the Black Stars of Ghana in the qualifiers.
“The protest lodged by South Africa has been declared inadmissible by the Disciplinary Committee as it did not meet the requirements foreseen under art. 46 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code and art. 14 of the Regulations of the Preliminary Competition of the FIFA World Cup 2022,” FIFA said in a statement.
As FIFA Rejects South Africa’s Complaint Against Ghana, it his clearly means there won’t be a reply against Ghana.
Background of the Story…
South Africa demanded a rerun or replay of the decisive qualifier against Ghana, which they unfortunately lost by 1-0, and also expressed their displeasure with Senegalese referee Ndiaye Maguette.
The South African Football Association (SAF) was sure they had presented sufficient evidence to support their match tampering charges and that FIFA would approve their request for a rematch and also punish Senegalese referee Maguette.
Ndiaye Maguette controversially awarded Ghana a first-half penalty, which Andre Ayew converted to secure the victory and advance the Black Stars to the final qualifying round.
Ghana will now participate in the 2021 play-offs, which have been rescheduled from December 18 to January 26.
Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Egypt, Tunisia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, Algeria, Cameroon, and Morocco are the ten teams who will compete in the play-offs.
