Montevideo - Uruguay's Football Association (AUF) is in
shambles as the federation’s entire board resigned amid a crisis over violence
at football games in the country, which could potentially cost the nation their
spot at the Fifa World Cup later this year, KickOff Nigeria reports.
The reason for the board’s resignation is a result of the
Uruguayan government's decision to withdraw police protection at matches
involving two of the country's biggest clubs Peñarol and Nacional, because of
violence by their "barras bravas" hardcore fans.
Uruguay will slog it out in Group D that also has Costa
Rica, England and Italy at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
