African giants, Tunisia, are now on the verge of being banned from competing at the 2022 World Cup by FIFA following comments made by the nation’s sports Minister Kamel Deguiche.
With less than a month to the kickoff of the 2022 edition of the global tournament, all the 32 nations that qualified are gearing up to appear in Qatar.
Tunisia are among the five African nations that will fly the flag of the continent at the 2022 World Cup.
According to the report on GOAL, Tunisia’s sports Minister Deguiche recently confirmed readiness to dissolve federal offices in the nation, which could also affect the Football Association.
Under the law governing FIFA, Football Associations are not allowed to be controlled by the governments, and any country that breaks this rule will be suspended.
The report added that FIFA chiefs have written a letter to Tunisia’s sports Minister asking him to make clarifications about the comments made by him.
Tunisia are currently in Group D alongside Denmark, Australia and reigning champions, France. In World Cup’s history, no African side has ever won the title before, as their highest stage is reaching the quarterfinal.
