FIFA bans Pakistan Football Federation over 'undue 3rd-party interference'

The suspension will be lifted once PFF offices and access to PFF accounts are returned to PFF
Football's world governing body FIFA has suspended Pakistan after rejecting the running of the country's football federation by a court-appointed administrator.
FIFA suspended Pakistan from worldwide soccer on Wednesday because of government interference after disputed national federation elections. They claim the suspension comes due to "undue third-party interference".
The PFF's membership has been suspended with immediate effect in accordance with the decision of the Bureau of the FIFA Council.
This comes as a big low for the Pakistan national football team and all its allies as they will now be disallowed from participating in all the worldwide events that will be organised by the global football governing body and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC). The PFF representative and club teams are no longer entitled to take part in worldwide competitions until the suspension is lifted, the media release stated.
The ban also means that none of the PFF's members or officials can benefit from development grants or training courses from FIFA or the Asian Football Confederation (AFC). This would require the offices and access to the accounts of PFF returned to the federation itself.
The Pakistan soccer federation's "offices and its accounts remain in control of a court-appointed administrator", FIFA said. In a statement sent to Reuters, Shahid Khokhar, an ally of Hayat, lay the blame for PFF's trouble at the feet of Muhammad Safdar, senior PML-N lawmaker and the son-in-law of recently ousted Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
The men's national team has not played a game since 2015, which has seen it slump to an all-time FIFA ranking of 200 and there is no professional football league.
Earlier this year, FIFA had given a final ultimatum to authorities in Pakistan for handing over football affairs to elected-president-PFF Faisal Saleh Hayat or face suspension from membership. Pakistan now sits on an all-time low of 200th rank in the Federation Internationale de Football Association world rankings and this suspension is going to make things worse for the team.

Brady shrugs off shoulder injury
If the Bills are going to get back into first place after the bye, they need these three players on offense to step up. Yes, the injury is to Brady's non-throwing shoulder, but that doesn't mean it isn't going to affect the way he plays.
