Injury Round Up

Wales have been hit with injuries and lost their two first-choice keepers, Wayne Hennessey and Danny Ward to knocks, making them a doubt for Saturday's Nations League match versus Belgium in Cardiff. Hennessey missed out on the defeat to the Netherlands and his replacement Ward was forced to come off at half-time with a knee problem. Joe Morrell is also a doubt after picking up a foot injury which forced his substitution as Wales lost 2-1 to the Dutch.

Managerial Changes

The general secretary of Jamaica's FA has quit after the men's team refused to play again for their country until he left his post. Players had posted a list of grievances against him, which included travel back to Jamaica not being arranged after their 1-1 draw in Suriname on Saturday. The players called it "another example of incompetence". Jamaica were due to face Suriname in the return match of the Concacaf Nations League on Tuesday, but found their opposition arrived in Jamaica before them. It took the Jamaican government to intervene to prevent the team "being stranded in Suriname" according to the Minister for Sport Olivia Grange. The players also claim that they had not been paid for months, that two players, Spartak Moscow's Shamar Nicholson and Derby County's Ravel Morrison had failed to arrive due to poor travel arrangements. They also say that they were left to sleep on couch beds in Suriname.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has rejected the chance to take on the job as Barnsley manager and will stay at Burton Albion next season.

Ben Garner has left Swindon Town to become Charlton Athletic's new head coach.


Disciplinary Charges

Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini's fraud trial has failed to begin in Switzerland due to Blatter saying he is too ill to testify. Platini is already in the middle of a four year ban from football, reduced from the eight years he was initially banned for. Blatter is currently banned for 12 years, after receiving a second 6-year ban in 2021, following an internal FIFA investigation. The 86-year-old Blatter told a court hearing that he was unable to testify due to chest pains. Blatter and Platini's lawyers had already failed to have FIFA's civil claim against the pair to recoup the 2m Swiss francs that Platini is claimed to have received illegally from Blatter. The lawyers also failed to have the trial moved to a civil court ahead of Blatter's convenient illness just as the case is to begin which could result in up to 5 years in jail.

A Manchester City fan who ran onto the pitch on the final day of the season at the Etihad Stadium and taunted Aston Villa keeper Robin Olsen, as well as attempting to provoke the Villa fans, has received a four-year football banning order. 37-year-old Paul Colbridge will also have to pay fines and costs totalling £795. There is an ongoing investigation into an alleged assault on Olsen by City fans during a mass pitch invasion.

Four clubs have been banned for life from the 4th tier of South African football for fixing games in an attempt to win the league. Bizarre results hit the game as Matiyasi FC and Shivulani Dangerous Tigers battled for the title including the Tigers beating Kotoko Happy Boys 33-1 and Matiyasi beating 3rd placed Nsami Mighty Birds 59-1. Officals from the clubs have received suspensions of between 5 and 8 seasons, while match officials have been given 10-season bans. Four more teams are also facing punishment, among them Happy Boys, whose players simply left the pitch during their 33-1 mauling, and Mighty Birds, who scored an incredible 41 own goals during the 59-1 beating. Mighty Birds coach Neil Thwala spoke to a local radio station, saying: "In the previous match we played, we were told the referee is part of Shivulane Dangerous Tigers. We scored four goals but all of them were disallowed by the referee but then they hit a side net and the referee said it's a goal. When we reported the matter to Safa, we were told that the referee's decision is final. The players' minds were not on the game because even if they won, they knew it wasn't going to help them in any way. I tried as a coach to push them but it was difficult - there was nothing I could do." I wonder if Mike Riley is appointing their officials too?
