Ghanaian soccer fans want Equatorial Guinea banned from football

blackstars1Soccer fans in Ghana calling on the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and FIFA to ban the Thunder National of Equatorial Guinea from all its tournaments to serve as deterrents to other nations.

Most Ghanaians are unhappy about the chaotic scenes that marred the semi-final match between Ghana and the host nation of the 2015 AFCON tournament.

Ghanaian Soccer fans at the Malabo stadium were pelted with bottles and other items in anger after the Black stars beat their Equatorial Guinea counterparts three goals to nil to qualify for the finals.

President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi condemned the attack and described the incident as an unfortunate one.

“This 21st century we expect to see more decency in the behavior of fans, but to take the laws into your own hands and react negatively to the decisions of a referee and indulge in acts of violence is not acceptable under any circumstance it is rather an unfortunate incident,” he stressed.

Ghanaian fans are worried about the development and are calling on CAF and FIFA to ban the host nation from future tournaments.

“What the Equatoguineans did on the pitch does not speak well of African football so they should be made to face the consequences,” a fan said.

The fans therefore want the host nation to either be banned for four to ten years from future tournaments.
