FIFA on Wednesday ordered a World Cup qualifier between South Africa and Senegal to be replayed after the referee was banned for match fixing.
The November 2016 tie, which will be restaged in November, was won by South Africa 2-1 after Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey awarded them a controversial penalty.
Lamptey was initially suspended for three months by African football’s ruling body CAF for awarding a penalty for a non-existant handball”, with FIFA handing down the life ban in March.
News of the rematch comes as a boost for Senegal, who are placed third, one point behind Cape Verde and Burkina Faso in African zone qualifying Group D, with two games to go.
Only the group winners secure a ticket to the 2018 finals in Russia.
FIFA explained the decision to replay the game had come after sport’s highest court CAS had confirmed “the lifetime ban of match referee, Joseph Lamptey, for match manipulation, the ruling imposed by the FIFA Disciplinary and Appeal Committees”.
The statement added: “The match will be replayed within the November 2017 international window, with the exact date to be confirmed in due course.
Fight For Independence: The Catalonia Story
Catalonia is located on the northeastern region of Spain,and home to over 7.5 million citizens. it has it own language, cultural tradition and the second biggest city in Barcelona.Before the civil war of (1936-1939) the region was given wide autonomy, but was later declined under the rule of Francisco Franco. following the death of General Franco in 1975, Catalonia regained her autonomy and secured a major judiciary and legislative power following a landmark vote in 2006.
However in July 2010, the Spanish constitutional court ruled that parts of the region autonomy statute were unlawful and that references to Catalonia as a country has “no legal validity”. following this event more than a million people held a march in Barcelona Spain to oppose the ruling.
In November 2014, Catalonia’s government held an I formal referendum in which more than 80% of its citizens voted in favour of independence. and it has since fought for the right to hold a legally binding vote and push ahead to referendum despite the firm opposition of the spainish government. even when a ballot paper question was asked as to whether if Catalonia should become an independent state, 90% of the voters backed independence.
in response to this, after the nation constitutional court declared the referendum illegal, Madrid declared an order to confiscate millions of their ballot slips.
On sunday state police were sent to block all polling stations and seize ballot boxes in an attempt to disrupt the vote. violent crashes erupted between voters and security forces,statement released claimed that at least 844 people were injured.
The Prime minister Mariana Rajoy has stated his refusal to recognise the referendum, also the foreign minister Mr Alfonso Dastis denies that there was any significant violence on the voters during the operation.
Mr Dastis told reporters “you may think people were peaceful exercising their right to vote but the problem is the so-called referendum has been held to be illegal by the constitutional court.
