Gyan’s concern

Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan has waded into the controversy of the penalty incident involving the Black Stars and South Africa’s Bafana Bafana a fortnight ago.

Gyan, who is Ghana’s all-time top-scorer with 51 goals and Africa’s leading scorer at the FIFA World Cup, watched the game from the screens and has shared his opinion on the incident in an interview.

“I think the incident was a bit casual. From where I sit and how I saw it I think Daniel Amartey went down too easily.

But, the referee was closer to the spot and probably had a better view of the situation. Remember that the tempo of the game also could have influenced the referee’s decision to award the spot-kick,” he said in the interview.

Referee’s penalty award

Senegalese referee Maguette N’Diaye awarded a 32nd-minute penalty to the Black Stars in the all-important decider between the four-time African champions and the Rainbow nation.

Andy Yiadom’s opinion

Reading FC defender Andy Yiadom, who featured in that game, told the BBC he feels the call was a soft one from the referee.

He expressed this concern, after seeing replays from the television screen.

Gyan’s success story

Gyan has been capped 109 times and has scored 51 goals for the West African powerhouse.
