EXTRA TIME: Social media roasts South African referee Victor Gomes

Football fans were not happy with the performance of Gomes on Saturday afternoon, and they have called for the referee to be suspended by Safa

South African referee Victor Gomes made headlines for all the wrong reasons as Golden Arrows beat Baroka 3-2 in a PSL match on  Saturday afternoon.

With the scoreline already at 3-2, Gomes awarded a dubious penalty to Baroka which was coolly converted by Richard Matloga, but the man in the middle disallowed the goal, citing encroachment on the side of the visiting team.  

Television replay showed that Gomes was wrong to disallow the goal, and his decision opened a can of worms. 

Some called for Gomes to be suspended or even be banned from refereeing.

Now, the question is whether or not the South African Football Association (Safa) will do something about Gomes.
