The atmosphere in Ghana currently is a tensed one as many football-loving Ghanaians are feeling a sense of loss and disappointment over Ghana’s failed chance at qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
At the last minute of the match between Ghana and Uganda on Saturday, a referee disallowed the goal scored by Black Star player Raphael Dwamena.
The South African referee Daniel Bennett waived the last seconds goal, apparently because the match time was up.
However this has riled up a lot of Ghanaians who believe the referee’s actions throughout the match were dubious and need to be investigated.
Captain of the Black Stars team, Asamoah Gyan has expressed his frustration at the outcome of the match, demanding that a protest against the final score be made.
On his Instagram page, a furious Asamoah Gyan wrote: “How on earth can this goal be disallowed. We have to protest on this one. Ghana is soo weak in protesting. Everything is "Fama Nyame". I'm so furious.”
Asamoah Gyan is among the many Ghanaians demanding that the Ghana Football Association step in to protest the referee's final decision.
