FIFA fines Zimbabwe for missing women’s Olympic qualifier – Yahoo Sports

Zimbabwe’s soccer body is in deep financial trouble, with the senior men’s team already thrown out of 2018 World Cup qualifying because ZIFA couldn’t pay outstanding wages to a former coach.

 

FIFA fined the Zimbabwe Football Association 10,000 Swiss francs ($10,400) Wednesday for missing the first leg on July 19. ZIFA couldn’t raise the money to send the women’s under-23 team to Ivory Coast.

 

ZURICH (AP) — FIFA has fined Zimbabwe and awarded Ivory Coast a 3-0 win after the Zimbabweans failed to show up for a women’s Olympic qualifying game.
