However, most of South Africans believed that the penalty was too soft and criticized the decision of Senegalse referee maguette Ndiaye.

And Bafana Bafana boss Hugo Broos shares the same point of view as he said the refereeing decision in that game was against the visitors.

“…The game started and after 15 minutes, I went to my bench and said to my two assistants ‘forget it, forget it, Ghana will win this game,” he said in a SAFA Press conference on Wednesday.

“And in my career, there are those games that you think that the referee is against you,” he added.
