The South Africans feel cheated by the referee and want the game to be replayed.
The head of the South Africa Football Association Safa Tebogo Mothlante had the following to say;
“We will be writing to both Caf [the Confederation of African Football] and Fifa – firstly to investigate how the game was handled and secondly to challenge some of these decisions,”
“As we did last night, we have already registered with the match commissioner that we will be making a formal complaint.”
“We are very disheartened by their actions and we can’t let it destroy the players – when we have the chance to challenge, we will challenge,”
“We feel very much robbed because it is not an isolated incident of a penalty. There are just a lot of questionable decisions by match officials and we will get an expert to dissect other incidents, so we can make a strong case.”
