Ghana Move On From Penalty Drama?

It appears that the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has already moved on from the penalty drama that ended Bafana Bafana's hopes of qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

'Ghana Coach Should Recall Boateng For World Cup Play-Offs'

Reports suggest that the South African Football Association (SAFA) is still awaiting an answer following their complaint regarding Senegalese match official Maguette Ndiaye last month.

The South African body accused the referee of manipulating the result after his dubious decision to award Ghana a penalty in their 1-0 win over Bafana in their final group game of the second-round qualifying phase.

SAFA's lodged complaint did not go down well with the GFA, who refuted the claims made by Danny Jordaan and Tebogo Motlanthe.

Here is where Ghana are among the highest-ranked African nations following their win over SA: 

In a recent interview, however, the GFA's technical director, Bernhard Lippert (pictured above), appeared to show that Ghana's focus has already shifted to the next round.

"The last match against South Africa has given me a lot of hope," he told Citi Sports.

"We all know we have good players, but I only saw the teamwork, togetherness and passion in the last game.
