Dominica Football Association is in more discord
The Dominica Football Association is in more discord after regional FIFA head Jack Warner visited the DFA and fired the current executive. But head of DFA Dexter Francis said ‘I’m still in charge’ and the Dominica football association has appealed to FIFA’s ethics committee over what it calls ‘the appalling conduct and obvious abuse of power’ by FIFA vice-president Jack Warner.
The association’s media release gave no information on possible reasons for the actions taken by Warner, who is also president of the CONCACAF region of FIFA.
Dominica is scheduled to play an international friendly against Guadeloupe on January 18th, 2008 in preparation for their opening game World Cup Qualifier against Barbados around the 6th Feb 2008.
