Greece Suspended From World Football...

European Football Champions Greece have been suspended indefinetly from all competitions and friendlys along with all Greek Club representation in European Tournaments such as the European and UEFA Cups.

FIFA have suspended them "due to government interference" breaching rules on federation decision-making processes and the independent, non-political, nature of national governing bodies.

The current Conservative government has been tryign to get a firmer hold on the sport with new regulations which have caused problems between the Hellenic Football Federation and the Greek Sports Minister and ultimately landed the country in footballing exile.
