FIFA suspends Pakistan’s Football team

Pakistan Soccer Squad

By Muhammad Luqman
Pakistan has been suspended from international football because of what global soccer body FIFA
described as undue third-party interference in the country’s football federation ,PFF.
According to a statement issued by FIFA, the suspension would prevent Pakistani teams, including the national side, from playing in international competition and the PFF from benefiting from FIFA development and training programmes.
“The PFF offices and its accounts remain in control of a court-appointed administrator, which constitutes a violation of the PFF obligations to manage its affairs independently and
without influence from any third parties in accordance with the FIFA Statutes,” said FIFA.
“The suspension will be lifted once the PFF offices and access to the PFF accounts are returned to the PFF.”
, Pakistan, 200th of 211 teams in the world rankings, have not played a full international since a
0-0 draw with Yemen in a World Cup qualifier in March 2015.
Pakistan have never qualified for the World Cup.
