FIFA & UEFA SUSPEND BOSNIA-HERCEGOVINA

Bosnia-Hercegovina have been suspended from world football after refusing to comply with governing body Fifa's regulations.
The Bosnian Football Federation (NSBIH) had been ordered to change its three-man presidency into one single position by both Fifa and European body Uefa.
But the move was rejected at a NSBIH meeting on Wednesday, prompting Fifa to take immediate action. The suspension means Bosnia cannot play any international matches.
They are currently fourth in Group D of the 2012 European Championships qualifying campaign, five points behind leaders France and a point behind Belarus and Albania but with a game in hand over their rivals.
But Bosnia's next match away to Romania on 3 June looks unlikely to go ahead unless Fifa and Uefa lift the suspension, which also prevents Bosnian teams or officials from participating internationally.
"Fifa and Uefa deeply regret that this decision had to be taken," the governing bodies said in a joint statement on Friday.
