Football Notes: Fan Of Argentine Second Division Club Killed In Pregame Shooting

Before Argentine second division side Nueva Chicago's game on Saturday, five members of "rival factions of the club's fan base" were injured in a shooting, including one who was killed. The victim, 20, was "identified as a member of the 'Las Antenas' faction, which clashed with the 'Los Perales' group" prior to a game against Guaraní Antonio Franco. The incident took place 600 meters from Nueva Chicago's República de Mataderos stadium in Buenos Aires (EFE, 8/17). ... FIFA has reinstated impeached Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President Aminu Maigari with immediate effect. It "also directed" that the planned Aug. 26 elections "must hold on the said date." FIFA said in a statement that Maigari's "impeachment by some members of the Executive Committee of the NFF did not follow due process and was not ratified by the Congress of the NFF" (ALL AFRICA, 8/15).
