World football governing body has banned Ghanaian match official Joseph Odartei Lamptey for life for alledgedly manipulating Bafana Bafana of South Africa’s win over Senegal in the World Cup qualifiers played on November 12, 2016.
Odartei Lamptey was found guilty of breaching FIFA’s disciplinary code of match fixing as a result of the Penalty he awarded to the home team, that aided their two – one victory.
He penalised Kalidou Koulibaly for handball, but replays showed the ball hit his knee.
Football’s world governing body says it will give more details once the decision becomes final and binding.
Lamptey can now appeal to Fifa and the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
