GFA send delegation to Nigeria


The three-man delegation will monitor the performance of the CAF officials in a game that is crucial to deciding who goes through to China.

Nigeria needs to beat South Africa to eclipse the Black Meteors, while a draw or a defeat for the home side will see Ghana advance.

“We haven’t finalised the names of the officials who we are going to send to Nigeria. But we have confidence that the CAF match officials will handle the match in a very professional manner,” GFA spokesperson Randy Abbey told the City Press.

“We hope that South Africa will play their hearts out and show the same attacking force they did against us despite losing in both matches.

“As a Ghanaian, I want South Africa to stop Nigeria and bow out with their heads held high to boost their development process leading up to the 2010 World Cup.”

South Africa, who have no wins from three matches to date, leave for Nigeria on Monday.
