Brazil in danger of being banned from international football

By AFP, 2000-06-10

RIO DE JANEIRO, June 10 (AFP) - Four-time World Cup winners Brazil could be banned from international football if a representative of The South American Football Confederation (CSF) finds against them in an ongoing investigation.

Eduardo Deluca, general secretary of the CSF, is to look into a row between fallen Brazilian football giants Vasco da Game and the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF).

Vasco, unhappy at the CBF's system of allocating points at the end of last years Brazilian championship that saw them relegated to the second division, have taken their case to court.

Deluca will study both Gama's rebellious attitude and the CBF's conduct before sending his report to world football's governing body FIFA on Wednesday.

The report could lead to a two year suspension for Gama.

However, if the report points the finger at the CBF, disciplinary action could range between a simple fine for them or an outright ban on Brazil taking part in internationals.
