FIFA dismisses SAFA appeal for replay against Ghana

The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has dismissed SAFA’s appeal to have the match against Ghana replayed.

South African Football Association dragged CAF and Ghana to FIFA over the outcome of their last World Cup qualifying game.

Ghana defeated South Africa 1-0 in their last group game to top the group and qualify for the play-offs.

But South Africa who felt hard down by the penalty awarded to Ghana took the matter to FIFA.

And it looks like they have lost the case.

“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. The decision is subject to appeal.”
