FIFA bans South Sudanese official for taking soccer money

ZURICH (AP) The only African soccer federation leader to publicly support Gianni Infantino's successful FIFA presidential campaign in 2016 has been banned for corruption.

FIFA says Chabur Goc Alei of South Sudan has been banned for 10 years and fined 500,000 Swiss francs ($499,000).

FIFA says Alei "misappropriated" funds from his federation's annual grant from Zurich, and development project money in 2014 and 2015.
