FIFA AGREES TO PAY R5 MILLION TO SAFA FOR BAFANA BAFANA-SENEGAL MATCH

The Group D match will be replayed in tow months time in South Africa
Safa CEO Dennis Mumble confirmed that Fifa will fit the bill they had to fork out for the match held last year which was found to have been manipulated by banned referee Joseph Lamptey.

“They (Fifa) have confirmed to us that they will pick up the tab of that match that was played on November 12‚ 2016. They realise that we were not at fault and these are wasted costs for us. Fifa have confirmed that they will pay,” Mumble told The Sowetan.

Bafana Bafana were expected to play an international friendly match (Nelson Mandela Challenge) in November, 2017.
