Portugal defeated Ghana in their first world cup matches in group H. But it was a highly controversial game. It was a five goal thriller and both teams gave a good account of themselves. Portugal won the game but we’re aided by poor officiating.
The first two goals by Portugal were questionable. In the 65th minute C. Ronaldo was brought down by a Ghanian defender in the 18 yard box, but that contact was minimal and C. Ronaldo took full advantage of it. A penalty was awarded to Portugal which led to their first goal. What amazed me was that there was no VAR check on the foul of C Ronaldo.
In the 78 minute, Joao Felix scored assisted by a defense splitting pass from Bruno Fernandes, but Felix was slightly offside before Fernandes played the pass. Again, there was no VAR check.
Ghana felt hard done by. It is up to FIFA to review the situation and ensure such doesn’t repeat itself in the future.
