Good question... As they did not enter the first round, they probably won't be eligible. But how could they enter? As non-FIFA members, they would not be eligible to enter the FIFA World Cup qualifiers. Does this mean that NMI can never again play in Asian Cup qualifiers?

I find it strange that AFC (and CONCACAF and OFC) allows its associate members to enter national team competitions, but CAF does not.

What about Kuwait-Laos? Kuwait still suspended?
"FIFA has informed the AFC, Kuwait Football Association, Laos Football Association and Korea Republic Football Association that, taking into account the suspension of the Kuwait FA, the Kuwait-Laos and Korea Republic-Kuwait 2018 FIFA World Cup™ qualifying matches, scheduled for 24 and 29 March 2016 respectively, cannot take place as things stand at the time of writing."

08.09.2015 match (India 0-3 Iran) - India were punished for fielding an ineligible player - the match was awarded to Iran (with the same score, 3-0). Meanwhile, Bhutan were given a warning for a dog running on to the pitch twice against the Maldives.

Interestingly, all fines for homophobic chants were incurred by Latin American countries (with Chile racking up 4 consecutive fines). Argentina, Honduras, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay were given single 20,000 Swiss Franc fines, while Chile were given 70,000 Swiss Franc fines for the 4 separate incidents. So, FIFA thus earned 170,000 Swiss Francs (approx 156,000 Euro) due to homophobic chanting by Latin American fans - over 20% of the total collected in fines by FIFA.


 Altogether, some 0.8 million Swiss Francs were earned through fines (approx 0.75 million Euro), with Jordan paying the heaviest fine (90,000 Swiss Francs) for infringements of media and marketing regulations.

Ah priorities.

I wonder did FIFA ever fine itself for the homophobic/sexist/racist comments made by various members of its committee?

Yes but the punishment must be effective enough to prevent or reduce future occurences. Giving a nominal fine to the FA in a low key manner does nothing to affect the actual cause of the issue. The FAs do not really have that much control over supporters, even if they are genuinely interested in trying to deal with it (which is doubtful). There are all kinds of inconsistencies in the level of these punishments. We have seen very heavy punishments for isolated incidents (e.g. a few years ago the Denmark 3-3 Sweden match which was forfeited after one drunk supporter ran towards the referee), but other cases where repeated racist chanting and general hooliganism and fireworks etc is given only a small perfunctory fine, if any.

It may be worth noting also that homosexuality is illegal in several FIFA member countries.

so if you are eliminated, you are not really eliminated, you get a second and even a third chance..... (see the draw of yesterday)

why do Nepal, Mongolia, Macau and Brunei  are not allowed to enter ? Now those poor teams have four years without continental competition..... it seems not fair...

A new AFC international competition, to replace the AFC Challenge Cup, has been proposed to take place in November 2016 and September 2020 for the continent’s lowest-ranked teams who have little opportunity to organise international friendly matches.

Nepal, Brunei Darussalam, Macau, Mongolia, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, as well as the two teams eliminated after the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 qualifiers play-off, will form the participating teams for the 2016 competition.

The 14-day tournament will be played between the eight teams at a centralised venue, providing not only a minimum of three matches, but also including coaching, refereeing, technical and event management education courses.


The problems I see with this - Northern Mariana Islands cannot take part. Also, THREE teams will be eliminated from Asian Cup qualifying, not two, so that will leave 9 teams, not 8.

Let's call it the AFC Even More Challenge Cup.
After a couple more iterations it will just be Brunei vs Macao in a straight fight to out-pathetic each other.

If they are re-instated to FIFA in time.  If not, they will either forfeit all their matches 3-0, or FIFA/AFC might bring in the next best team who did not qualify to take their place.  It's anyone's guess until a definitive statement is made by AFC/FIFA.
