Briefs | Football: Macau FA says it is still investigating 21-18 match

The Macau Football Association has informed the Times that an investigation into the controversial 21-18 score between Ka I and Hang Sai football teams is still ongoing. On June 16, the two local teams, playing in a Macau Cup tournament match, deliberately conceded goals to one another in what appeared to be a protest against the decision of the Macau Football Association not to send the SAR team to compete in Sri Lanka. The local football authority said it held a meeting with representatives of the two teams on June 18, beginning its investigation into the unusual match, and that more information would be released in the next few days. With regards to the missed Sri Lanka match, FIFA recently fined the Macau FA 10,000 Swiss francs (MOP82,000) for failing to play the away game. The team was also removed from qualifying for the 2022 World Cup.
