The match counted for the second day of the group, after FIFA ordered that the match be replayed due to the tainted match played on November 12, 2016. The Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey then whistled an imaginary penalty for the South. Africans, who won by 2-1.
Men coach Aliou Cisse have not spent a night of rest, however. The “Bafana Bafana” were very offensive, even hitting the crossbar in the first half.
The return match, without stake, will be played next Tuesday in Dakar. It will be an opportunity to celebrate this second qualification for a World Cup.
