The Black Stars midfielder has jabbed the referee for failing to take certain decisions at the crucial stages of the game that could have given his side victory

Ghana midfielder Derek Boateng has taken a swipe at Tunisian referee Med Kordi, accusing him of contributing to their 1-0 loss against Zambia in their 2014 World Cup qualifying game on Saturday.

The Dnipro player believes that if the man in the centre had strictly gone by the rules, the Black Stars could have recovered from a first-half Christopher Katongo goal.

“We didn’t lose the game because we are bad,” Boateng said to reporters. “We lost the game because the last ten minutes the referee frustrated us. He was not a good referee at all.”

“We are trying to do anything we could but he still frustrated us.

“As you could see we had two fouls at the last minute but the referee whistled against us and showed us yellow cards,” the former Getafe player stated.

Boateng added, “I can’t imagine something like this can happen. Like I said before, this is football, they won and we accept our defeat and we wait for the next game. ”

Ghana lead Group D with superior goal difference pending the outcome of the Sudan and Lesotho game, which will be played on Sunday.
