Peru qualification at risk, according to reports

FIFA would then have the freedom to choose whoever they deem appropriate to slot into the vacancy with World Cup Regulations stating: 'If any association withdraws or is excluded from the competition, the FIFA Organising Committee shall decide on the matter at its sole discretion and take whatever action is deemed necessary.

Peru, who last played at the World Cup in 1982, became the final side to seal their spot when they beat New Zealand 2-0 over a two-legged play-off.

According to Libero, Congresswoman Paloma Noceda wants the Institute of Sport to control the Peru football association.

Peru could lose their World Cup spot if a proposed new law puts the country's football association under government control.

Zambia continue to rise on FIFA Rankings

If - and it's a very big "if" - this were to happen, Federation Internationale de Football Association would then be at liberty to decide which team would replace them in Russia, with tournament rules stipulating that rankings do not need to be taken into consideration.

If Noceda's bill is passed, officials in Switzerland could decide to exclude Peru from all Fifa-sanctioned tournaments, Libero is reporting.

'The FIFA Organising Committee may in particular decide to replace the association in question with another association'. Chile finished sixth in South American qualifying, behind Peru on goal difference. The All Whites could claim they would be the fairest decision since they were knocked out by Peru.

Having leaped from 44th to 41st spot in the rankings last month, a similar or greater leap was expected for the Nigerian team as they recently drew 1-1 at Algeria in a World Cup qualifier and defeated two-time World Cup winners, Argentina 4-2 in an worldwide friendly.
