Mamelodi Sundowns coach Steve Komphela mocks Ghana after AFCON exit


Ghana were eliminated from the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon on Tuesday after suffering a 3-2 defeat at the hands of minnows Comoros, ending a campaign in which the Black Stars failed to win any of their three group stage matches. 

The West African nation's humiliating exit was widely celebrated by social media users across South Africa who still feel hard done by from Ghana's controversial FIFA World Cup qualifier win over Bafana Bafana in November last year.

South Africa appeared to be on course to reach the next stage of qualifying heading into their final group stage match, only to be defeated by the Ghanaians in Ghana in a match that was ultimately referred to FIFA by SAFA following a number of controversial refereeing decisions.

World football's governing body ultimately dismissed SAFA's complaint on an apparent technicality but football lovers in Mzansi, including Mamelodi Sundowns' own Steve Komphela, were quick to suggest that Ghana's exit from AFCON was karma for November's encounter.
