The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has suspended controversial Ghanian referee Joseph Lamptey for his performance in a World Cup qualifier between South Africa and Senegal.

Lamptey wrongly awarded South Africa a penalty that gave them the lead in the qualifier.

According to CAF Lamptey is suspended for three months for poor performance and awarding a wrong penalty for handball despite the fact that the ball never touched the hand of the player.

Senegalese Football Federation (FSF) had sent a letter of protest to CAF asking them to investigate the matter.

South Africa went on to win the match 2-1 and result will stand despite the suspension of the referee.
