World Cup governing body, FIFA has dismissed the protest by South Africa that called for a replay for the 2022 World cup qualifier against Ghana last month in Cape Coast.

According to the Director of FIFA judicial bodies, the protest lodged is ‘inadmissible as it did not meet the basic requirements for filing protests.

Per the ruling, the Black Stars remain qualified for the playoff stage of Africa’s 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.

SAFA last month lodged a protest to have the last Group G match against Ghana replayed after the Black Stars edged them for the only qualification spot after a 1-0 victory at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

According to SAFA, Senegalese referee Maguatte Ndiaye made some dubious decisions in favour of Ghana especially with the penalty awarded to the Black Stars, but FIFA has quashed their protest.

A statement from FIFA said: “The protest lodged by South Africa has been declared inadmissible by the Disciplinary Committee as it did not meet the requirements foreseen under art. 46 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code and art. 14 of the Regulations of the Preliminary Competition of the FIFA World Cup 2022.

“The decision is subject to appeal,” it declared.
