ACCRA — The Ghana Football Association (GFA) says it will challenge some of the findings of an inquiry which questioned how over $3.5 million meant for the team's preparations for last year's World Cup was used.

A report released this month said the GFA must explain how it spent $1.5 million from FIFA and another $2 million from the state-run Ghana National Petroleum Corporation.

The report also said GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi should account for $200,000 given to him by the government to organize a friendly match ahead of the World Cup.

In response, the GFA said Saturday that there were several "misleading and inaccurate conclusions."

The report noted that Ghana officials — from the equipment manager to the head coach — were each given $100,000 appearance fees for the World Cup.
