Federation Internationale de Football Association 'monitoring' Peru's World Cup spot over proposed new law

  • Zambia continue to rise on FIFA Rankings

Peruvian congresswoman Paloma Noceda denied the new law would see government take over Peru's football association.

If Ireland's loss to Denmark was close we could have made a case but Italy would definitely be the best team to replace Peru in the scenario of them being thrown out. Italy, who failed to qualify for the tournament for the first time since 1958, are also watching closely. The All Whites could claim they would be the fairest decision since they were knocked out by Peru. Kenya was forced to disband its association in 2006 after ignoring the governing body's rules.

"If any association withdraws or is excluded from the competition, the FIFA Organising Committee shall decide on the matter at its sole discretion and take whatever action is deemed necessary", read the Fifa regulations.

That means they don't need to follow world rankings, or choose a replacement from the same confederation.

A Fifa spokesperson told BBC Sport: "Fifa sent a letter to the Peruvian FA on 23 November 2017, informing them that the current draft of the Peruvian Sports Law, which was presented to the respective committee of the Peruvian congress on 2 October 2017, includes certain items that, if implemented, would contravene the Fifa Statutes".

Federation Internationale de Football Association 'monitoring' Peru's World Cup spot over proposed new law

Long gone are the days when South Africa boasted the strongest team in Africa when Bafana Bafana were once ranked 16th in the world in 1996 after winning the African Cup of Nations.

Another option would be Chile, with the reigning South American champions finishing one point behind Peru in CONMEBOL qualifying.

"If this could affect Peru, it will be debated and removed".

Federation Internationale de Football Association rules also state the maximum number of European nations that can enter a World Cup is 13 (excluding host nation), which Russia 2018 already has - potentially ruling out giants Italy and the Netherlands.
