The FIFA World Federation Association has documented a number of its member countries for incidents during the qualification for the World Cup finals in Qatar (November 21 to December 18) with some massive punishments. The list published by FIFA on Monday comprises almost 50 sanctions.
Senegal, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic and Lebanon were punished for the incidents in their qualification games in March. The Senegal has to pay almost 171,000 euros, Nigeria around 146,000 euros, Congo 117,000 euros, the Lebanon 98,000 euros. All four countries must also play an international match to the exclusion of the public.
The punishments were imposed, among other things, due to racist -motivated incidents and violent riots.
