FIFA fines Qatar after players' political support for Emir

GENEVA (AP) FIFA has fined Qatar's soccer federation after national team players breached rules against political statements by displaying T-shirts of the country's Emir at a World Cup qualifier.

FIFA said Thursday its disciplinary panel imposed a 50,000 Swiss francs ($51,800) fine and reprimanded Qatar, the 2022 World Cup host.

The charges related to "displaying a political image" and "political displays" by fans at a 3-2 win over South Korea in Doha, FIFA said.
