Football team shamed and expelled for cheating!

New Zealand football team was expelled just hours before the final of the Oceania Olympic qualifying tournament because it was found to have fielded an ineligible player in the semi-finals, said the Oceania Football Confederation disciplinary committee (OFC).

OFC on Saturday decided that South Africa-born defender Deklan Wynne was not eligible to play in the semi-finals,  after Vanuatu protested their 0-2  loss, said Xinhua news agency.

As a result, Vanuatu were awarded the victory and went on to the final, playing Fiji earlier today.

“In accordance with Article 7 of the Regulations Governing the Application of the Statutes, a member of the New Zealand U-23 squad has been deemed ineligible to represent New Zealand,” the OFC said in a statement.

Fiji’s under-23 beat Vanuatu 4-3 on penalties and advanced to next year’s Rio Olympics.
