[Fifa admits bronze boot error, Chukwueze not Nwakali winner] We made a mistake at the closing ceremony of the FIFA U-17 World Cup Chile 2015 with the distribution of the adidas Bronze Boot. Instead of player no. 8 of Nigeria, Samuel Chukwueze, the player Kelechi Nwakali (player no. 10 of Nigeria) received the adidas Bronze Boot. However, if two or more players are still equal (after goals and assists), the player who has played fewer number of minutes will be ranked first. With this in mind, adidas will send you another Bronze Boot in December 2015, which we would kindly ask you to hand over to Samuel Chukwueze. Please be informed that Kelechi Nwakali may keep his trophy

[FIFA rules Ezra Walian ineligible to represent Indonesia at any level] Consequently, on the basis of the documents currently on file, it seems the player Ezra Walian would not be entitled to request a change of Association due to the fact that he appears to have acquired the Indonesian nationality only after having played his first international match in an official competition for one of the representative teams of the Netherlands

[Fifa also confirmed that the women’s game would be part of any package to help the sport cope with losses incurred due to coronavirus] Women’s football is being fully considered as part of this process in order to understand the various needs and impact on stakeholders within the women’s game.
Fifa is currently working on possibilities to provide assistance to the football community around the world, including women’s football. The exact format and details of this assistance are currently being discussed in consultation with Fifa’s member associations, the confederations and other stakeholders.
As part of these discussions, Fifa is in close contact with key women’s football stakeholders via the Professional Women’s Football Task Force and the Fifa-Confederations sub-working group on the impacts of Covid-19
