FIFA: GHANAIAN REFEREE BANNED FOR LIFE


Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey has been banned for life for 'match manipulation'...
The reason behind the decision centers around a penalty given to South Africa during the 2018 World Cup qualifier in November...South Africa won the game 2-1 over Senegal and that result put South Africa 2nd on the table and Senegal 3rd...

Lamptey awarded South Africa with a penalty after he deemed Kalidou Koulibaly touched the ball with his hands while the replay shows the ball hit his knee...

FIFA will give more details after "the decision is final and binding"...Lamptey is free to appeal to the Court of Arbitration and FIFA...The Senegal Football Federation (FSF) who made the innitial complaint was happy with the decision
