Today Ghana’s Group C fixture attracted a late drama where Ghana managed a 1-1 draw.
The Man of the Match, Ayew Dede, explained that, there was no fair play. Baba Rahman was hit by the Gabon player and whilst he was lying on the field, there was no fair play to restart the game. Gabon took advantage of the situation and scored the goal.
Benjamin Tetteh unfortunately received a red card in absentia after the final whistle for hitting a Gabon player. Benjamin did that because he felt the player did not adhere to the fair play rule and should have restarted the game instead of rushing to score against the Black Stars. It was a painful experience. The Black Stars are not happy at all about how the referee managed the entire game.
Our Black Stars must understand that the ” Fair play” is not a Fifa law that must be compulsorily complied with. This is why the Referee rejected all the complaints made by the Black Stars because the Black Stars should have remained focus.
Captain Andre Ayew Dede still believes that his team will qualify for the next stage. Ayew Dede deserved the Man of the Match considering his skills and impact on the match.
Even though the Black Stars would have won the match if they had not relaxed at the latter stage, the Gabon team could have stuck to the Fair play rule.
Ayew Dede mentioned that, through out the Match, the referee was not fair in his judgment as a Black Star player was hit by a Gabon player but the referee did not take any positive decision. The Black Stars lost concentration during the match.
