South African Football Association (SAFA) President, Danny Jordan has labelled some wild allegations on Ghana after their World Cup qualifying game stating a defeat for Ghana would have cost a major socio-economic canker in the West African country.


The jabs continues after Ghana narrowly defeated South Africa to finish as winners of Group G and cruise into the playoff round of 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers last Sunday.

The talking point after the game has been very awful and appalling following the penalty that was awarded to the Black Stars on the 31st minute- a kick which was slotted into the net calmly by Andre Ayew to make the difference.
The South African Football Association after the game have made so many accusations on the Senegalese referee Ndiaye Maguette who officiated the game having already written to FIFA seeking for a rematch.
Speaking on their appeal to FIFA, SAFA boss Danny Jordan has stated they are definitely going to recieve a positive news from the world's highest football governing body based on the complaints and evidence they have produced.
Also, he added by saying they would have been a major socio-economic problem for the Ghanaians if they had lost that game. He said;
 "This match was a very decisive one where Ghana had only one option to win. If Ghana loses this match, there will be major socio-economic problems even for the President of the country."
"We have not received anything official from FIFA after sending in our displeasures ,but the outcome of this will be positive .Eventhouh the CAF President is from South Africa, we don’t want to be opportunists and use him but of course we called him right after the game and he assisted us but we are not using him in all this."
