On Sunday, South Africa's hopes of taking part in the 2022 FIFA World Cup were ended after Bafana Bafana suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Ghana, courtesy of a solitary goal from André Ayew.

"The penalty issue, from where I was seated, it didn’t look legit. It is sad that referees decide the games at this level.

"Having seen what the team went through it is disheartening and we salute the Technical Team and the players for showing the fighting spirit despite the match officials' conduct."
