Joy Sports can report that players who were involved in the match played on July 17, 2021, and banned by the Ghana FA in May this year were contacted by FIFPro to ascertain the exact roles they might have played in influencing the outcome of the game.


Having satisfied its findings, it has on behalf of some of the players appealed the ruling at the world’s apex sporting adjudication body.

The source , however, did not state the specific players FIFPro will engage the GFA in a legal battle at CAS to save their careers.

About 25 players who featured in the game were banned for a number of months and years by the FA’s disciplinary committee.
