Chile Saved From World Cup Expulsion


“Chile has saved its spot in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa after a domestic relegation dispute threatened FIFA action. The Chilean club Rangers was deducted three points for using one more foreign player than allowed in a league match on Nov. 8, a 1-0 defeat to Cobreloa. The penalty saw the Rangers relegated to the second division, prompting the club to file a suit in the Chilean courts, which quickly raised FIFA’s ire.” (NYT)
