Otto Addo, the head coach of Ghana, criticized the central referee’s choice to give Portugal a penalty in their 3-2 World Cup loss.

The 37-year-old, who has been without a team since his contract at Manchester United was cancelled by mutual consent on Tuesday, November 22nd, stepped up and scored from the penalty spot.

Otto Addo, a Ghanaian coach, responded to the penalty by saying:

The referee gave a penalty which was not a penalty. Everyone saw that. Why? Because it’s Ronaldo or something?

If somebody scores a goal, congratulations. But this was really a gift. A special gift from the referee.

Addo said.

By squeezing past the legs of the Portuguese Danilo Pereira before he fired, Andre Ayew, the captain of Otto Addo’s team, equalized the score.

The team of Fernando Santos replied immediately, scoring twice in less than three minutes to retake the lead. Rafael Leo’s precise right-foot strike and Joo Felix’s beautiful lob were both accomplished with the help of Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes.

Ronaldo became the first player to score in five different World Cup competitions with his 65th penalty goal. The victory also put a stop to Portugal’s streak of losing its first three World Cup games.
