Salisu’s challenge, which led to Ronaldo’s penalty

Following a dubious penalty awarded to Portugal in their World Cup opening, many in Africa felt Ghana were the victims of bad refereeing.

Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal scored his country’s opening goal after Mohammed Salisu was judged to have fouled him in the box in what appeared to be a soft challenge. Ghana was holding on for a scoreless draw at that point.

While some fans accused Jordan Ayew for giving Portugal the ball back and allowing them to score two late goals, the majority of fans believe the Black Stars were treated unfairly since the referee denied their requests to use VAR to examine the event, which set the stage for the 3-2 loss.
