GHANAIAN DECREE JOSEPH LAMPTEH WAVING OF APPEALS

Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey waving off appeals from Senegal players during a FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifier against South Africa in Polokwane in November 2016.

FIFA on Wednesday ordered a World Cup qualifier between South Africa and Senegal to be replayed after the referee was banned for match fixing.

The November 2016 tie, which will be restaged in November, was won by South Africa 2-1 after Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey awarded them a controversial penalty.

Lamptey was initially suspended for three months by African football’s ruling body CAF for awarding a penalty for a non-existant handball”, with FIFA handing down the life ban in March.

News of the rematch comes as a boost for Senegal, who are placed third, one point behind Cape Verde and Burkina Faso in African zone qualifying Group D, with two games to go.
