Mali has been banned from playing International football!


As reported by www.dailymail.co.uk :
Mali has been suspended from international football after the West African country’s sports minister sacked the executive committee of its football federation, soccer’s governing body FIFA said on Friday.
The decision means that Mali, placed 61st in FIFA‘s world rankings, cannot play international matches including World Cup qualifiers until the dispute is resolved to world governing body’s satisfaction.
FIFA blamed the actions of sports minister Housseini Amion Guindo after he “decided to dissolve the executive committee of FEMAFOOT and appoint a provisional committee mandated to run the association.”
Soccer’s governing body insists that its member Football Administrations must be able to manage their affairs independently without government interference.
The rule is a controversial one as it means that national governments are powerless to intervene in their country’s football federation even when they suspect cases of mismanagement or corruption.
“The suspension will be lifted once ministerial decisions are nullified and the executive committee of FEMAFOOT and its president, Boubacar Baba Diarra, is reinstated,” said FIFA.
