According to him, he is most likely going to be charged with disturbing public order.
Reports indicate that before the game, Mr. Suleman had predicted Ghana would win 2-0 and told close friends that if that happened, he would pull out a crazy celebration.
When it became clear his prediction was spot on towards the end of the game, he celebrated in grand style.
Goals from Thomas Partey and substitute Kudus Mohammed in either half gave Ghana the 2-0 win over the Bafana Bafana in the opening game of their AFCON 2021 qualifying match.
