Zambia football authorities are refusing to comment on the dodgy refereeing during their 1-0 win over Ghana in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers on Saturday.
The performance of Tunisian referee Kordi has dominated discussion with many claiming he was bias against the Black Stars during the game in Ndola.
Kordi played a blinder when the ball hit a Zambian defender’s hand in their box in the second half while Ghana captain Sulley Muntari was forced to tell Chris Katongo the ‘truth’ after the latter’s kick crossed but the official awarded a corner kick against Ghana.
Talented youngster Christian Atsu was savagely brought down at the edge of the box and the referee gave him the yellow card which drew the ire of the Ghanaians.
What happened moments latter was even more curious.
Harrison Afful was also hacked down at a similar position and even though the referee took an infringement against him, a yellow card was not shown, if he dived.
These and many other decisions that went against the Black Stars are the reasons why the Black Stars complained of bias against them.
But Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) spokesman Erick Mwanza declined to comment on the performance of the match officials since he claims it is the policy of the FAZ not to comment on officiating.
“We do not comment on the performance of match officials,” Mwanza said.
“We are happy for winning the game against Ghana and we hope to continue from here and ensure that we qualify for the 2014 World Cup.”
Sudan tops the group with four points while Ghana and Zambia share the second spot with three points apiece and Lesotho languishes at the bottom with just a point after day two.
The third round of matches will be played on January 22, 2013 with Ghana hosting Sudan and Zambia sorting things out with Lesotho.
