Just after handing a penalty to South Africa in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Senegal, the Senegalese Football Federation is delighted by referee Joseph Lamptey’s life ban.
FIFA has since banned the Ghanaian referee for life after what the global football authority believes was match manipulation.
Although the West African referee is allowed to appeal the ban through FIFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sport, his future remains in jeopardy.
Following his decision to hand Bafana Bafana the penalty, Bafana went on to win the encounter 2-1 last November.
Lamptey penalised Kalidou Koulibaly for handball, but replays showed the ball hit his knee prompting FIFA to strike him off the referees roll.
