Fifa slaps ex-top official with ban


Former Oceania football general secretary Tai Nicholas has been banned for eight years for misappropr­iating Fifa funds and bribery, the world governing body said this week.

The ban – the latest in a series for the scandal-hit Oceania Football Confederat­ion – follows Fifa investigat­ions into money given to build a lavish “Home of Football” in Auckland.
