FIFA Has Dismissed South Africa's Petition Against Ghana

Fifa has dismissed the protest by South Africa that called for the replay for the 2022 World Cup qualifier against Ghana.
According to FIFA, the protest didn’t meet requirements under Article 46 of the Fifa Disciplinary Code and Article 14 of the Regulations of the Preliminary Competition of the FIFA World Cup 2022.

A statement from FIFA 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,”

South Africa wanted their 1-0 draw in Ghana replayed, and also protested about Senegalese referee Ndiaye Maquette.

South African Football Association (SAF) were convinced they had provided enough evidence to back their match manipulation claims and were confident of FIFA granting their request for a replay and also banning Maquette.

Maguette awarded Ghana a contentious first-half penalty, which was scored by Andre Ayew to secure victory and the Black Stars passage to the final qualifying round.

The ruling means Ghana will be represented in the play-offs draw which was moved from December 18 to January 26 2021.

Ten teams for play-offs are Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Egypt, Tunisia, DR Congo, Mali, Algeria, Cameroon and Morocco
