The world’s football governing body, FIFA has barred former Africa’s women champions Equatorial Guinea from competing in the qualifiers of the women’s Olympic football tournament in 2020.

FIFA’s disciplinary committee said that the country used a falsified document for one of her players, Camila Maria do Carmo Nobre de Oliveira during the qualifiers for the 2016 edition.
Soccer’s world governing body said it had found evidence of the use of two passports with different dates of birth for Camila Maria, who took part in several qualifying matches.
“Two birth certificates containing divergent information regarding the player’s parental affiliation were also provided,” FIFA said.
The player was banned for the next 10 international matches for which she would be eligible, fined 2,000 Swiss francs ($2,100), warned and reprimanded. The country’s FA, Feguifut was fined 40,000 Swiss francs.

“Further investigations related to the eligibility of several other players are currently ongoing,” said FIFA.
