LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) The Asian Football Confederation says the Qatar Football Association has lost its appeal of a forfeit of a qualifying soccer match against Oman for the London Olympics because it fielded an ineligible player.
The AFC says the Court of Arbitration for Sport has ruled that FIFA's judicial bodies were right to award Oman a 3-0 victory by default. The match last November had ended 1-1.
A CAS panel reviewed the case last Wednesday.
Qatar fielded midfielder Abdelaziz Hatim against Oman when he should have served a suspension for receiving yellow cards in two previous matches.
Oman advanced from the Asian Olympics qualifying tournament, but lost a playoff against Senegal in April.
