GFA To Protest Against Guinea

The Ghana Football Association (GFA), is considering protesting against Guinea, over the conduct of goalkeeper Nabby Yattara in the quarter-final game last Sunday.

Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi, president of the GFA said in an interview that, they are considering the option of lodging a protest over the tackle.

He said they waiting for the referees match report to take a firm decision on that saying the conduct of the goalkeeper was reckless.

“It was a deliberate tackle on Gyan and I believe he should be punished for doing that.

“He aimed at Gyan. I am surprised he did that, because we were leading them 3-0 and there was no way that attempt could save them from elimination.

“We are hoping the implications will not be serious. He is currently in Mongomo undergoing medical examination”. He stated.

Goalkeeper Yattara was sent off in the dying minutes of the game for the tackle on Gyan.

But there are calls for further punishment on him to serve as deterrent for others.

There are indications that, Gyan might miss the next game against Equatorial Guinea on Thursday, February 5.
