The coach of the Black Stars, Otoo Addo also blamed the referee for Ghana’s defeat on Thursday, claiming that Europeans had the support of the referee.

He said, “The referee was not in our favor. I think you have to ask the referee. I have no proof of that. We were playing the ball and there was contact. I don’t know whether they were not paying or whether the VAR was not paying attention. If you look at the replay, we played the ball, it was actually a foul against us”.
