Bafana Bafana plot against Black Stars?
Members of the Ghanaian community in South Africa have expressed fears that the Bafana Bafana team is contemplating using all means – fair and foul – to win this weekend's World Cup Qualifier against the Black Stars. A win for the South Africans will take them closer to the 2006 World Cup tournament in Germany. If the Black Stars win, they will be strong contenders for participation in the tournament. The Ghanaian community in Johannesburg claims to have received reliable information that the South Africans are intent on winning the team at any cost. The Ghanaians referred to the recent incident in The Gambia, in which a spectator ran into the Ghanaian Under-17 team's goalpost, distracting the goalkeeper and in the process helping the Gambian team to win the African U-17 Championship. They urged the Football Association to be wary of “certain tricks” by the South Africans and ensure that they are all neutralised.
