The women’s team of Gokulam Kerala FC is “stranded” in Tashkent after FIFA’s suspension of the All India Football Federation (AIFF) meant they were barred from playing in the AFC Women’s Club Championship, the team said on Twitter.
The club appealed to India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi and sports minister Anurag Thakur for “urgent intervention”.
