Italy might be making an appearance at the World Cup after all

The South American country won their spot at the Fifa World Cup finals last week when they beat the All Whites 2-0 in Lima, sparking euphoria in the nation's capital.

Peruvian newspaper Libero reports that congresswoman Paloma Noceda has put forward a new law which would place their national governing football body under the control of its institute of sport.

Peru's spot at the FIFA World Cup is in danger following reports the Peruvian government plans to take control of its football association.

If Ireland's loss to Denmark was close we could have made a case but Italy would definitely be the best team to replace Peru in the scenario of them being thrown out. The All Whites could claim they would be the fairest decision since they were knocked out by Peru.

FIFA takes a notoriously uncompromising stance on government involvement in football, banning Kenya from worldwide play in 2006 after its government dissolved the Kenya Football Federation - with FIFA presidential delegate Jerome Champagne calling it a violation of FIFA statutes on "the independence of the election and appointment of national football governing bodies".

If Noceda's bill is passed, officials in Switzerland could decide to exclude Peru from all Fifa-sanctioned tournaments, Libero is reporting.

That means they don't need to follow world rankings, or choose a replacement from the same confederation.

Despite qualifying for Russian Federation undefeated, friendly stalemate specialists England have dropped three spots to a 17-year low of 15th, while Italy, who failed to qualify for a World Cup for the first time since 1958, have leapfrogged Gareth Southgate's team - going from 15th to 14th.

"If this could affect Peru, it will be debated and removed".
