FIFA has banned Chad from global football until further notice over government interference in the running of the country’s football federation.

The move comes after the Minister of Youth and Sports dissolved the Federation of Chad Football Associations in March.

The ban by world governing football body comes just barely two weeks of the country been by the Confederation of African Football from last month’s final two rounds of qualifying for the Africa Cup of Nations.

An official statement from football world’s governing body said: “the Bureau of the Fifa Council or the Fifa Council may lift this suspension at any time before the next Fifa Congress takes place and we will inform you accordingly.”
