Albania football federation has stripped Skenderbeu of 2015-16 title

TIRANA, Albania -- Albania's football federation has stripped Skenderbeu of the club championship won in the 2015-16 season for "influencing results contrary to the sports ethics."

The federation ethical committee also decided on Friday to fine Skenderbeu 2 million leks ($16,660) and deduct 12 points from last season.

The decision did not mention whether the 2016 title automatically goes to second-placed club Partizani.

Last season, UEFA banned Skenderbeu for a year from European competition based...

Spain defeat France with help of video replay while Italy beat Netherlands

Two of the biggest football countries were on display but it was Video Replay Technology that starred, disallowing one goal and overruling a linesman on another.

The video assistant referee twice played an important role as Spain beat France 2-0 in a friendly in Paris on Tuesday.

FIFA is testing VARs ahead of their possible use at the World Cup, and the system ruled out a goal that had been given for France, and later overruled a linesman to grant Spain a goal.

Antoine Griezmann thought he had put France ahead in the second half, but after the goal was originally given, the VAR called down to the match referee and disallowed the goal for offside...
