Ghana head coach Otto Addo has slammed the Cristiano Ronaldo penalty decision after his side’s 3-2 defeat to Portugal in their World Cup opener on Thursday

In the second half, Mohammed Salisu fouled Ronaldo, who then stepped up to score the penalty that put him in World Cup history by making him the first male player to score in five different competitions.

Osman Bukari’s goal for Ghana in the 89th minute gave Portugal a scare, but they were unable to score an equalizer in stoppage time.

After the match, American referee Ismail Elfath came under fire from Addo for giving Portugal a penalty.

Everyone saw that the referee delivered a penalty that wasn’t a penalty. Why? Possibly because it’s Ronaldo? To beIN Sport, Addo spoke.

In response to a question regarding whether or not Ronaldo’s presence led to the foul being called, Addo said, “I think you have to ask the referee.” I can’t back that up. Then there was contact while we were playing the ball.

I don’t know if the VAR was paying attention or if they weren’t paying attention.

If you watch the replay, it was a foul on us even though we played the ball.

If a goal is scored, congratulations to the player. But in reality, this was a gift.

Up to the punishment, anything was conceivable. The game then became a little bit wild.
