Federation Internationale de Football Association threatens to throw Spain out of 2018 World Cup

Spain risk World Cup expulsion —Reports

Football's governing body FIFA has warned the Spanish football federation that the Spanish government's involvement in the election for the federation's new president could lead to them to being expelled from next year's World Cup in Russia.

The Spanish government chose to hold elections in the RFEF after the controversial case, which led to former RFEF President Ángel María Villar and others going to jail.

Concerned about the independence of the Spanish soccer federation, FIFA said Friday it will send a delegation to the country to investigate government meddling.

Spain have been surrounded by political worries in recent months, and now Federation Internationale de Football Association have warned that they might be kicked out of the tournament if politics come into it.

FIFA added the associations must be assured that their internal affairs do not get affected by third parties.

A statement from Federation Internationale de Football Association said: "A joint delegation from Federation Internationale de Football Association and Uefa will travel to Madrid in the near future to observe and analyse the situation that the RFEF is going through".

Preparations for a new election are already well underway, and the government's National Sports Council have made contact with the RFEF over Villar's eventual successor.

The federation said in a separate statement that its interim president, Juan Luis Larrea, had spoken with FIFA and UEFA officials at the World Cup draw on December 1 and that he had passed on their "enormous concern" to Spain's minister of education, culture and sport.

"The RFEF passed on these (FIFA's) concerns to the minister for sport and is expecting to organise a meeting on the matter".

Should FIFA take exception to Noceda's proposed action, they could expel Peru from the World Cup and replace them with one of the teams who failed to qualify.
