Ghana is said to have failed to erect a flag at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in the 1-1 Group E draw with Congo last month.

According to the world governing body, there were no flags even flown at the stadium. FIFA, as a result, slaps the Ghana Football Association with a warning as its sanction.

In a list of sanctions published by FIFA on Monday, Ghana’s Group E opponents Congo and Uganda were also cited for various offenses committed earlier during the qualifiers.

Some players were also sanctioned. The decisions were taken by the Disciplinary Committee of FIFA.

Some are subject to appeal.
