"Haiti have been kicked out of the Olympic soccer tournament and fined 500 Swiss Francs for fielding at least one professional player in the Haitian team which played Costa Rica."
Considering that Haiti had already been eliminated in December 1967 by Costa Rica, does this suspension refer to the next tournament in 1972? Haiti did not participate in the qualifiers for 1972 (nor 1976 either). Anyone have more clues?
BTW an article in "La Nación" refers to the professionals, apparently Vorbe and St Vil based on their time at clubs in the USA.
