FIFA lifts ban on El Salvador

FIFA has lifted a ban on El Salvador's football authority, which had been imposed because of government inference.
The world governing body acted after the El Salvador government refused to recognize the authorities set up to run football in the Central American country and threatened to extend it for a further year if the situation was not resolved.
But FIFA issued a statement Thursday saying that the Salvadorian parliament had amended its laws to allow the authorities to comply with FIFA's requests.
FIFA says the new football authority has now been formerly recognized by the government and registered by the ministry of the interior.
