South Africa Accept To Replay Senegal

SAFA have accepted FIFA's ruling that Bafana Bafana must replay their 2018 World Cup qualifier with Senegal.

Bafana won the match 2-1 in Polokwane last year, but FIFA ordered a replay for November after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) upheld a lifetime ban of referee Joseph Lamptey for match manipulation. SAFA considered challenging the decision but have decided otherwise.

"Our position is clear on the issue of match fixing and manipulation. We cannot benefit from such and take the points," said SAFA president Danny Jordaan at a press conference on Tuesday morning.

South Africa are bottom of Group D with a point from three matches - four points behind Senegal, and five shy of Cape Verde Islands and Burkina Faso.

Stuart Baxter's side next host the Burkinabe on October 7.
