FIFA has ordered a replay of the match between South Africa and Senegal in two months time.

According to the statement announced on FIFA.com, the decision comes after Court of Arbitration for Sport uphold the life ban of the match referee who officiated the game.

The statement reads:

The Bureau for the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers has ordered a replay of the qualification match between South Africa and Senegal held on 12 November 2016.

This decision follows the confirmation of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to uphold the lifetime ban of match referee, Jospeh Lamptey, for match manipulation, the ruling imposed by the FIFA Disciplinary and Appeal Committees.

The match will be replayed within the November 2017 international window, with the exact date to be confirmed in due course.

The referee Lamptey awarded a dubious penalty to South Africa in the World Cup qualifier match played in South Africa.
