A lot of inkling is still in the air with Ghana’s encounter with South Africa counting towards the final day of the 2022 Qatar World Cup qualifiers. Former Black Stars international Asamoah Gyan has spoken on the matter.
Asked by Asempa FM about the case, the former Rennes driver expressed doubts about the fault committed by South African Rushine de Reuck on Ghanaian Daniel Amartey.
“There weren’t a lot of cameras that day to give us different angles unlike what we see in other league games elsewhere. From where I sat and how I viewed it, the offense was questionable. I think Daniel Amartey fell too easily. This is my thinking, based on where I sat and how I saw things. However, the referee was closer to the point and probably had a better view of the situation, “said the former Sunderland scorer.
According to Asamoah Gyan, even if the fault whistled by Senegalese referee, Maguette Ndiaye seems less obvious, it does not detract from the quality of play provided by the Ghanaians.
“The pace of the game was also high and that could have influenced the referee’s decision to give Ghana the shot on goal. We (are) all Ghanaians and support the Black Stars to win games, so I still follow them even though I’m not on the squad. I still support them to qualify for the World Cup. If I compare the matches against Ethiopia and against South Africa, I would say the Black Stars were better against South Africa, “added the former Ghana scorer.
