IN NIGERIA: The Nigeria Football Federation is "in disarray after meetings on Tuesday resulted in a controversial 'election' and a split in the governing body." The developments on Tuesday have "resulted in a situation where Nigeria are in danger of being suspended from world football for government interference" (BBC, 8/27). ... Ghana FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi "looks to have been cleared by FIFA of any match-fixing allegations following a preliminary investigation" as the world governing body has "referred the claims" of a U.K. newspaper to the GFA to investigate. The ruling is a "massive boost" for Nyantakyi, "who is seeking to launch a legal action against the English newspaper the Daily Telegraph over the report made during the World Cup in Brazil in June." The Telegraph accused him of "being involved in match-fixing before the World Cup, which sparked international attention on Ghana" (GHANA SOCCER NET, 8/25).
