A dramatic performance this Wednesday night after the 3rd and 4th World Cup 2018 qualifiers! Indeed, FIFA has just announced that the match between South Africa and Senegal (2-1) played last November on the second day will be replayed!
Taken by the FIFA World Cup Qualifying Office, “this decision follows the confirmation by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to apply the lifetime ban of referee Jospeh Lamptey, for manipulation of match “the statement said.
At the meeting, for which the dice were obviously piped, South Africa had taken advantage of a totally unjustified penalty granted by the Ghanaian official to open the score.
