Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah calls for VAR after AFCON exit

Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has called for Video Assistant Referees in Africa football after his side's exit from the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Black Stars lost 5-4 on penalties to Tunisia after a 1-1 draw on Monday evening at the Ismailia Stadium in Egypt.
Dede Ayew's back-heel which resulted in a goal before the interval was disallowed after referee Victor Gomez whistled for a hand ball.
However, Appiah believes if there was VAR, the goal would have stand.
"Expectations were high. We really worked hard and put in our best. Unfortunately penalties can go either way and also Tunisia is a strong team," Kwesi Appiah told reporters after the match.
"I think there should be VAR in African football. If there was VAR today the results could have changed. The goal scored would have been allowed."
"I think he Victor Gomez should go and watch the video again and judge it for himself. It was really bad," he ended.
The VAR would be introduced from the quarter-finals of the tournament.
