Argentina federation to have affairs managed by emergency FIFA panel

ZURICH -- FIFA says it has taken control of Argentina's football federation from the current leadership and will help pick an emergency panel to manage its affairs.

FIFA announced the decision Friday, two days before the Lionel Messi-led Argentina team plays the Copa America Centenario final against Chile in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

On Thursday, Argentina soccer body president Luis Segura -- a member of FIFA's ruling council -- was charged with fraud related to TV broadcasting rights.

Led by Julio Grondona since the 1970s, the federation has been in turmoil since the late FIFA senior vice president died in 2014.

FIFA says a so-called "normalization committee" of up to seven members "will be in charge of running the daily affairs" of the Argentine body.

Elections must be organized by July 2017.
