Feutmba Blasts FIFA Over Bafana Verdict

South Africa's hope to feature in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar was shattered when the world football governing body dismissed SAFA's case and Roger Feutmba has reacted to the decision.

SAFA had hopes that their case against Senegalese referee Maguette N'Diate would result in a replay between Bafana Bafana and Ghana. The match official gave the hosts dubious penalty in the crucial fixture, but FIFA has since dismissed the case.

Feutmba says the decision by is shameful and it doesn't solve African football challenges, instead it makes them worse, as many referees will get away with such behavior.

"I'm not impressed with that verdict, everyone saw what happened in Ghana. It is a shame what FIFA did and will send the wrong message about African football," Feutmba told the Siya crew.  

"I think they should've done more investigation into the matter. It is very unfortunate for Bafana Bafana and this decision takes African football backwards. 

"This shows that African football belongs to certain region, it is not good for the game but it was expected because there's something wrong in the leadership, especially when it comes to sorting out African football." 

SAFA has since indicated their intention to challenge the verdict and it remains to be seen what the next steps will be.
