  • Description

    The International Football Federation (FIFA) Congress, meeting in Paris, France, on Wednesday (August 23) voted to continue its exclusion of Rhodesia. The Congress passed, by 62 votes to 18, an African motion to adjourn all discussion on the Rhodesian issue, and at the same time confirm the suspension imposed at the 1970 Congress in Mexico.

    The motion was in response to a move by Scotland to reinstate Rhodesia, and it rejection follows closely on Tuesday's (August 22) exclusion of Rhodesian participation in the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, West Germany, by the International Olympic Committee.
