Hooligan's Wake Up: Kosovo joins UEFA, looking at FIFA next

(Alonso 31', Lewandowski 74')-(Griezmann 54')


Headlines
Kosovo has taken the first step towards joining FIFA. They have been accepted as a full member of UEFA and are eyeing the fast track to FIFA at the end of the FIFA congress in Mexico City. They won the vote with UEFA 28-24 with strong opposition from Serbia, who Kosovo declared independence from in 2008.

In the latest fallout from the Tottenham-Chelsea melee on Monday, Mousa Dembele and Erik Lamela could be in the FA's firing line. Dembele for his attack on Diego Costa's eye and Lamela for stomping on Cesc Fabregas's hand. No charges have been thrown down yet, but they could be coming soon.

Thankfully for Leicester, they already have the title wrapped up and their remaining two games don't matter, because they could be playing them without standout defender Robert Huth. He was charged with violent conduct by the FA for pulling on Marouane Fellaini's iconic afro. Fellaini has also been charged for the elbow to Huth's face that prompted the retaliatory hair pulling. The two have until today to respond to the charges.
