2018 FIFA World Cup Senegal could miss out on Russia 2018 if…

Senegal’s qualification has been put on hold pending Burkina Faso’s protest against FIFA decision to sanction a replay between South Africa and Ghana.

Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey was cited for poor officiating after he awarded a dubious penalty to South Africa and subsequently suffered a lifetime ban.

FIFA ordered for a replay of the game and Senegal who lost the first leg 2-1, got  a 0-2 win to secure a place in Russia.

Burkina Faso who were also in the same group with South Africa and Senegal claims FIFA not fair to them and have therefore sought redress with the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

Burkina Faso FA president Sita Sangare insisted: "Senegal have not yet qualified. An appeal has been made to the CAS and it has to be respected.

"The CAS has yet to make its decision. It has told us that our appeal is admissible, and better still they have told South Africa the same about their own appeal."

"They will examine both pleas, by 1 December at the latest.

"We now need a big win against Cape Verde, and for Senegal to only draw in Dakar. Both are possible."

"We will play flat out and try for as big a win as possible, while keeping an eye on events in the other game.

"We have no doubt that the CAS will annul the game played last Friday - as it should never have been played in the first place."
