Richard Ofori’s error versus Mozambique was documented in the official 2023 AFCON documentary.

In Ghana’s last group B match, Ofori’s choice to tip the ball rather than let it run out for a goal-kick gave Mozambique a corner kick.

A Mozambican player headed the ensuing corner goal, ending Ghana’s tournament chances.

Richard Ofori apparently apologized to a former Kotoko despite receiving threats and criticism for the error.

Baako stated that Ofori placed the responsibility on the Alassane Ouattara Stadium’s potato-like pitch, where the game was played.
