FIFA World Cup 2022: Senegal Slapped With £8,700 Fine For Not Following Rules

SENEGAL have attracted a £8,700 penalty for violating Fifa regulations before their World Cup round of 16 match against England.

After defeating Ecuador 2-1 in their last group match, Aliou Cisse’s team secured a fix against the Three Lions which is to be played on Sunday.

Senegal under Aliou Cisse was fined by Fifa for skipping out on a player for pre-game media responsibilities, preferrably the captain.

As a result of their pre-game conduct, they got into trouble with football’s regulatory body.

The accusation stemmed from manager Cisse doing his pre-game media briefing WITHOUT a member of his team.

Every team is required by Fifa rules to have a press conference in one of the two media rooms at the main conference centre the day before a game.

The Fifa Disciplinary Committee confirmed that it fined the Senegalese Football Federation CHF 10,000 and issued a warning for violations of articles 44 of the Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022TM Regulations, 2.7.2 of the Media and Marketing Regulations, and 8.5.3 of the Team Handbook, according to a Fifa statement.

The mandated press conference that was held on November 28 prior to the Ecuador vs. Senegal Fifa World Cup match is at the centre of the alleged violations.
