Barbados have been chalked off the 2018 World Cup qualifying tournament and fined 6,000 Swiss francs for fielding an ineligible player against Aruba on 14 June.

Fifa ordered Barbados on Monday to forfeit their 1-0 win in the second leg of their second-round match and Aruba were awarded a 3-0 victory by default, meaning they advanced 3-2 on aggregate.

According to the ruling by the Fifa disciplinary committee, Hadan Holligan, who scored the only goal in the 14 June match, should not have featured when he was to serve a one-match ban for receiving yellow cards in two previous games.

“The sanction will have immediate effect and as a consequence Aruba will now qualify for the next round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia qualifiers,” the statement concluded.
