Fifa has ruled out the protest of South Africa that called for replays for the 2022 World Cup qualifier against Ghana that Bafana Bafana lost last month in Cape Coast.
The world’s governing body gave South African the damaging blow on Friday, December 3, when the disciplinary committee ruled that the protest filed was ‘inadmissible in the sense that it did not fulfil the minimum conditions for filling in protests.
“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,” FIFA said in a statement on Friday.
“The decision is subject to appeal.”
