Fifa have made a big decision about an African country.

The football governing body have announced that Chad have been readmitted to international football after they ended a suspension, originally handed out for governmental interference in football, that lasted six months.

Initially, they banned Chad after the country’s minister of youth and sports dissolved the FA (FTFA) in March.

“The Bureau of the Fifa Council has decided to lift the suspension of the FTFA with immediate effect,” Fifa explained in a statement on Tuesday.

The following reasons were given for the end of the ban:

“Following the lifting of the suspension, a joint Fifa-Caf mission will be deployed to N’Djamena without delay to follow up on discussions with the FTFA and the Chadian government,” they added.

After the government dissolved the FTFA, African football’s body Caf proceeded to disqualify Chad from the final two rounds of qualifying for January’s Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Luckily for Chad, they missed no competitive matches since the team was already knocked out of the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers in the first round in 2019.

Their next participation will be in March when international football returns.
