Ghana’s hope of qualifying to four consecutive World Cup appearance fizzled thanks to the robbery of South African referee Daniel Bennett.
Ghana drew against the Cranes of Uganda in Kampala but Ghana scored two legitimate goals that were ridiculously disallowed plus a penalty appeal waved away by the referee and his assistants.
This has angered Ghanaians and they want the referee to be investigated and subsequently banned like it happened to Ghanaian referee Josph Odartei Lamptey.
Mainstream Ghanaian sports commenters and social media users are tearing the referee and his linesmen into shreds for the dubious manner the match was handled especially a goal Ghana scored in the dying seconds only for the strike to be ruled off-side (the referee later said it was a ‘clear’ goal but time was up-can you imagine that?).
