Sequel to the appeal lodged by the South Africa Football Association concerning the penaty that disqualified them from participating in Next year FIFA world cup in Water, the world football governing body, FIFA has dismissed South Africa’s request to have their World Cup qualifier against Ghana replayed.



South Africa made a “formal complaint” to FIFA after the match last month, appealing for a replay after a series of “questionable decisions”, according to the chief executive of their football association.

However, FIFA has now released a statement declaring their request “inadmissible”.

The statement read: “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.”

Ghana’s Daniel Amartey went down in the South Africa box after minimal contact from defender Rushine de Reuck. Referee Maguette Ndiaye awarded a penalty, which Andre Ayew scored to send Ghana through.
