FIFA have confirmed that Bafana Bafana and Senegal will replay their match day two 2018 World Cup qualifier.

The World football governing body came to this decision after the Senegalese Football Federation reported referee Joseph Lamptey to CAF and FIFA, following some of his decision-making in the encounter.

Lamptey was later banned for life by FIFA for what they deemed "match manipulation".

A statement from FIFA read,"The Bureau for the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers 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.

As stated in the FIFA World Cup regulations, this decision shall come into effect immediately but shall be subject to confirmation by the Organising Committee for FIFA Competitions at its next meeting, scheduled for 14 September."

Bafana are bottom of Group D, but now only have one point and will have to win their remaining three games to have any chance of qualifying.

A very bad precedent being set by FIFA here, this decision may come back to haunt them in future. Other federations have taken note of this and may use this against FIFA in future, and all hell will break loose. There's no reason to replay the match unless it can be proven that SA had something to do with the referees behaviour on that day

What a shameful decision. What a mockery. Isn't that the refree's decision is final.? What about the hand of God's goal? Refree's is no longer hence can be challenged in court and the decision intended handed. What a shame to football. I don't think Blatter would have ratified such an callous decision.

What can I say we as South Africans we r underestimated. International club games (CAF) all the referees make incorrect calls nd end up causing SA teams loosing their games. Y is it like the FIFA fair play regulations are only applied to us?

Yasho sakudlala inyanga yathi,uma ningayikhokheli imali yayo ngeke niyithole impumelelo.Nakhu namhlanje siyinhlekisa kwamanye amazwe,khokhelani inyanga imali yayo ukuze iqaqe ifindo elibophile.Frm 2010 up until now come on gyz mide leminyaka,bhadalani inyanga khona izokwazi ukuniqaqela ifindo futhi ibuyise nezinhlanhla zenu,cishe nalabafana bengayeka ukudlala ibhola bedlalela imali,bengakwazi ukukhohwla kancane imali kebedlalele izwe not I fame.Amadoda nabadlali abaqotho bagcina ngo 1996 gone are those days lapho kwakwaziwa ukuthi wabhekana nebafana usenkingeni.

@Shapiro , REMEMBER MY COUNTRY MAN THAT IF THERE IS AN ACTION, THERE WILL BE A REACTION, FOR AN EXAMPLE, IF A REFEREE HAS JUDGE FOR A FOUL IN INSIDE THE BOX, THEN THE PENALTY WILL AWARDED
