Liverpool's Sadio Mane wants to send good wishes to Manchester City's Ederson but believes his tackle was a yellow card.

LIVERPOOL, England -- Sadio Mane has told ESPN FC that he backs FIFA's decision to restage Senegal's World Cup qualifier against South Africa after the referee in charge of the game was found guilty of match-fixing during last November's fixture in Polokwane.

FIFA has ordered the game, which ended in a 2-1 win for South Africa, to be played again in November after Ghanaian referee Joseph Odartei Lamptey was banned for life after being found guilty of influencing the result of the match.


Baxter hoping Itumeleng Khune brings the magic

South Africa coach Stuart Baxter is hoping to use speed and guile to overcome the more physically imposing -- but at times lumbering -- Burkina Faso when the sides meet in a 2018 World Cup qualifier in Soweto on October 7.

Baxter has made a number of changes to his squad after the disastrous back-to-back defeats to Cape Verde this month which, coupled with FIFA's order to replay their 2-1 victory over Senegal from last year, has thrown their campaign to reach Russia into disarray.

There is also a first call-up for Bidvest Wits defender Reeve Frosler, but Bafana Bafana will be without the suspended Dean Furman.

The Burkina Faso Football Federation has challenged FIFA's ruling to replay a World Cup qualifying game because the referee was corrupt.

Burkina Faso filed an appeal against a November replay of South Africa's 2-1 win over Senegal last year, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said on Tuesday.

The federation called the ruling "abuse of power" by a FIFA World Cup organising committee panel.

FIFA had never before ordered a game to be played again because of match-fixing. Its investigation found that...

FIFA to cover costs of Senegal replay

FIFA have agreed to cover the costs of South Africa's World Cup qualifier replay against Senegal in November.

The match originally took place in November 2016, when Bafana Bafana emerged 2-1 winners courtesy of some controversial decisions from referee Joseph Lamptey.

The Ghanaian official has since been found guilty of match-fixing and banned for life, prompting FIFA to take the unusual step of ordering a replay -- a game they will now pay for.

"They have confirmed to us that they will pick up...
