FIFA investigating Ethiopia, Togo players

JOHANNESBURG (AP) - FIFA is investigating Ethiopia and Togo for allegedly using ineligible players in World Cup qualifying.

Possible sanctions against the pair would significantly affect Africa's qualifying competition for next year's tournament in Brazil and help South Africa and Cameroon's chances.

Ethiopia qualified for the final playoffs Sunday with a 2-1 win over South Africa but potentially faces being stripped of its 2-1 win in Botswana on June 8 for using an ineligible player.

FIFA is also looking at Togo's home 2-0 win over Cameroon on June 9. The victory could now be awarded to Cameroon, pushing it above Libya in the race for a playoff spot.

FIFA did not say which players were under suspicion. The typical punishment for using ineligible players is a 3-0 win for the opposing team.
