2022 World Cup: ‘NO VAR’ trends after Ghana concedes 2 ‘controversial’ goals against Portugal

Ghanaians on Twitter are infuriated after Ghana conceded a controversial penalty against Portugal in the second half of their opening game in the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

A flick pass to Cristiano Ronaldo was intercepted by Mohammed Salisu in the eighteen-yard box in the 62nd minute of the game which called for that controversial penalty kick that Ronaldo put behind the goal keeper.

Many of the netizens are displeased with the penalty decision by the referee and wish there was a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) review for that decision to be cancelled.

On a second occasion, Portugal’s winger, Rafael Leao was in an offside position when he netted the second goal but for the second time, a VAR did not happen and the goal was accepted.

The two “unpleasant” decisions have caused Ghanaians to be outraged by the outcome of the game.

In the end, Ghana lost to Portugal by 3 goals to 2 and would have to at all cost ensure it gets a win in the next two Group H matches against Uruguay and South Korea.
