FIFA reinstates Myanmar for 2018

However, FIFA says Mynamar must play all its home matches in a neutral country.

Myanmar had been disqualified from the next World Cup after fans forced a 2014 qualifier against Oman in July to be abandoned in the first half. Fans threw stones and water bottles onto the field when Oman led the second-leg match 2-0.

FIFA awarded a victory by the same score and Oman advanced 4-0 on aggregate.

FIFA’s appeals committee ordered Myanmar to pay a fine of $27,700.
