Ghana qualified for 2022 World Cup with an “interesting penalty” – Former Kotoko Chairman

Former Asante Kotoko board chairman, Herbert Mensah, believes Ghana qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup because of what he described as an interesting penalty.

He is referring to the a penalty made sure Ghana got past South Africa and reached the players where they beat Nigeria on away goals rule and qualified.

A controversial penalty was awarded to the Black Stars in November 2021, which Andre Ayew converted at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

This win allowed Ghana to advance to the third and final round of African qualification for the World Cup. South Africa’s appeal to FIFA over the referee’s decision was rejected.

“Is it football that you have a problem? You failed at the Africa Cup of Nations and you have an interesting penalty and then you are in the World Cup,” Mensah said at a press conference during the African Games on how to develop sports in Africa.

“If you go through that means you will always be in the situation whereby you will go to Ivory Coast and you will be disappointed.”

Ghana failed to progress from the stages at the Qatar tournament in 2022.
