Thomas Partey engages in a face to face conversation with Tunisian referee Sadok Selmi
The body language of the midfielder shows he is unhappy with most of his officiating.
An epic photo was captured of Blackstars midfielder Thomas Partey and Tunisian referee Sadok Selmi when Ghana played Nigeria in Lagos.
Having had a goalless draw in their first leg encounter in Kumasi Sports Stadium, all was to play for in the second leg game in Nigeria as there must be a decider from this match who would have to travel to Qatar for the FIFA World Cup Qualifier.
A summary of all the officiating that took place from Ghana’s perspective can be seen in a photo where Thomas Partey had one arm on the shoulder of referee Sadok Selmi, and the other raised to his face but respectful manner.
His message to him was clear that he didn’t like some of his officiating.
Despite all the controversial officiating, the Blackstars of Ghana were able to beat their Nigerian counterparts using the away goals rule.
