Ghana’s government has called for a “forensic audit” of the country’s football body over allegations of missing World Cup campaign funds.
It said there is an unexplained $1million (£640,000) hole in the Ghana Football Association’s (GFA) finances, the BBC reports.
The GFA denied the allegations, saying there was no corruption ahead of the 2014 Brazil World Cup.
The government had to send $3million in cash by plane to players in Brazil to avert a final-game boycott over bonuses.
GFA spokesman Ibrahim Saanie Daara told Joy FM that it was still waiting to receive a copy of the full report, but would cooperate with any future investigations.
The report also calls for an investigation into a $200,000 payment made to GFA chief Kwesi Nyantakyi for a friendly match in the lead-up to the 2014 World Cup.
Mr. Nyantakyi has not yet responded to the report.
A government-backed commission of inquiry was set up to examine the failures surrounding Ghana’s World Cup campaign, which was seen as a national embarrassment at the time.
The report released by the presidency on Friday sets out the government’s response to the inquiry.
