FIFA:Mali Suspended From International Football Over Govt Meddling
FIFA took action after Mali’s sports minister, Housseini Amion Guindo, decided to replace the executive body of the Malian Football Association FEMAFOOT with a new provisional leadership.
“The suspension will be lifted once ministerial decisions are nullified,’’ it said in a statement. In the meantime, FEMAFOOT has lost its FIFA membership rights, and the national team and clubs from the West African country are banned from international events.
