SADIO MANE, KHUNE FACES UNEXPECTED EXTRA MATCH AFTER FIFA ORDERS SA- SENEGAL REPLAY FOLLOWING MATCH-FIXING CASE

Sadio Mane faces unexpected extra match after FIFA order South Africa-Senegal replay


CAPE TOWN – Liverpool’s Senegal striker, Sadio Mane, must play an unexpected World Cup qualifier in November – after FIFA ordered a clash between South Africa and Senegal to be replayed after the referee was found guilty of match-fixing.

The original tie, played in November last year, saw South Africa win 2-1 – after Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey had awarded South Africa a penalty for handball when subsequent replays showed the ball clearly hit Senegal defender Kalidou Koulibaly on the knee.

The Senegal Football Federation (FSF) made a complaint to FIFA who investigated and banned Lamptey for life in March for “unlawfully influencing match results”, a decision upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport this Wednesday.

The game will be replayed in November, on a date already set aside for international fixtures.
