SAFA agrees to replay World Cup qualifier

The Football Association of South Africa on Friday agreed to go by the order from Fifa for a World Cup qualifier between South Africa and Senegal to be replayed.

South Africa won the said match 2-1 win in November last year but the result was challenged after replays showed that a penalty awarded South Africa over a hand ball decision was wrong.

The match referee, Ghanaian Joseph Lamptey was banned for life by Fifa for “match manipulation”.
