Ghana football Association has replied today, Thursday November 18, to the complaints lodged by South African Football authorities concerning their last match in Cape coast on Sunday.
GFA finds “irresponsible” the reaction of their opponents after the Sunday match dominated by Black Stars thanks to a penalty.
“ It is shocking, irresponsible, and outright disrespect 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.” GFA said in a press release on Thursday.
Ghana also call on the SAFA to “responsibly accept defeat and show respect to the Black Star’s achievement on the field, for this is not the first time Ghana has defeated South Africa and this will not be the last time”.
“In fact, every South African knows the pedigree of the Black Stars in football, a reason the team has a lot of following in South Africa. The GFA will continue to project the positive image of football and protect the integrity of the game across the globe.”, the statement added.
GFA has also acknowledged receipt of a FIFA note on criticism of Bafana Bafana.
