GFA files FIFA protest over poor officiating in Uganda game

Ghana’s last competitive game was a goalless draw against Uganda

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has lodged a protest with FIFA over the performance of referee Daniel Bennett and his assistants Eldrick Adelaide and Steve Marie during the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Uganda on Saturday.

The Communications Division of Ghana FA said the GFA filed the protest to football’s world governing body, FIFA, immediately after the match at the Mandela National Stadium in Kampala on Saturday.

Mr Bennett and assistants denied Ghana a “perfect goal” in the 93rd minute with television replays showing that it was a perfect goal.

The GFA statement noted that the referee also denied Ghana a penalty earlier in the second-half when Ghana midfielder Frank Acheampong was brought down in the box.

“These and several other decisions by the match officials have left the GFA with no option than to ask FIFA to examine their performances,” it said.

“The GFA respectfully asked FIFA to consider the possibility of a replay in order to serve the ends of justice without fear or favour.”
