FIFA have banned Ghanaian referee, Joseph Lamptey, for life after he 'unlawfully influenced' the result of Bafana Bafana's clash with Senegal.
 
The statement read:
 
The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has decided to ban the Ghanaian match official Joseph Odartei Lamptey from taking part in any kind of football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) at national and international level for life.
 
The official was found guilty of breaching art. 69 par. 1 (unlawfully influencing match results) of the FIFA Disciplinary Code during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ qualifying match between South Africa and Senegal on 12 November 2016. 
 
On the other hand, all charges against the Ghanaian match official David Lionheart Nii Lartey Laryea, whose behaviour had also been the subject of investigations, were dismissed by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.
 
Further information concerning the South Africa v. Senegal match in question will be provided once the decision becomes final and binding.
 
FIFA follows a zero-tolerance policy on match manipulation and is committed to protecting the integrity of football. As a result, FIFA will continue with its ongoing efforts to combat match manipulation through a variety of initiatives, which include the monitoring of international betting and a confidential reporting system with a dedicated integrity hotline and e-mail address.

You can't take a direct spot kick quick in near 18 area, you have to wait for signal @Ngu_EX

If the Referee helped South Africa to win the game, then these South African individuals who arranged this game with the ref must be pointed out as well and banned for life.

I am not happy with the way Steve Khompelas way of players lines up, why did he sign them and not using them? The last time i checked,Abraw was in the first team, not even in the bench,Moon and other new signing. Why buy players and they don't features in the team for the whole season, this is destroying their carrier, look what happened to Siphelele Mthembu, he was brilliant at platinum Star,he was brought in just to feature the bench. Come on bro SK, change the path that you travelling please.

These moments remind me Barca's game against PSG even though I support Barca. That officials should be banned too unless if racism is taking part in our football. I don't think South Africa bought the referee at tue scene. I think racism is playing a big role in our football globe
