VAR call finally goes for Ghana after Portugal’s fiasco

Amusingly, the United States of America referee Ismail Elfat pointed to the spot for a penalty kick and refused to back his decision with a consultation from the VAR.

Ghana went on to lose the game 3-2 and this left a sour taste in the mouths of Ghanaians and fair-minded football fans across the world.

However, in the Black Stars second game against South Korea, Ghana got a call for its first goal courtesy the VAR.

After Mohammed Salisu put Ghana ahead in the first half, the VAR was consulted for a possible handball against Black Stars captain Andre ‘Dede’ Ayew.

But after that few tensed moments, the referee confirmed the goal much to the relief of all Ghanaians.
