Angry Ghana Coach Fight Referee Over Fake Penalty Awarded In Game Against Portugal



Portugal whipped Ghana 3-2 on Thursday in the Group H opener of the FIFA World Cup taking place in Qatar.

Ghana coach Otoo Addo has reacted to a penalty decision which Cristiano Ronaldo solidly kicked at the back of the net of the Black Stars.

Otto Addo said ‘The referee gave a penalty which was not a penalty. Everyone saw that. Why? Because it’s Ronaldo or something?’


‘If somebody scores a goal, congratulations. But this was really a gift. A special gift from the referee’, he added.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos however feels the referee made a fair decision.


Santos said ‘I think if the VAR team had felt the referee should consult the VAR, they would have prompted him.

‘I also think Joao Felix was fouled at a point and I expected the referee to check the VAR but he didn’t. So I don’t think there was a call the VAR would have been necessary for the referee’.
