Ghana Defender Changes His Mind On Bafana Penalty

A Ghana defender has seemingly made a big admission about the penalty they were awarded against South Africa.

There has been a lot of fallout from the Black Stars' 1-0 win over Bafana Bafana in their final Group G 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

SAFA lodged a complaint about the officiating on the day, and also cited an usual spike in betting activity.

The penalty was a big talking point after the match, with many feeling that Daniel Amartey went down too easily, and his Black Stars teammate Andy Yiadom has now admitted he felt the spot-kick was "soft" after watching a replay.

"When I was on the pitch it looked like it was a penalty, but I have watched it back, it was a little bit soft," the Ghana defender told World Football on the BBC World Service.

"But it is football and I have had them given against me plenty of times and it is one of those things, and it was about actually scoring the penalty which we did.

"I have been the person who has just touched him and the other person has just fallen over. At the moment, I know we won the game and that's that."
