Zurich: Six match officials have been banned for life over two friendlies played in Turkey this year in which seven penalties were awarded, FIFA said on Wednesday.

FIFA said that, in a separate case, it had banned Barbadian soccer official Lisle Austin for one year for lodging a complaint relating to football matters in a Bahamian court.
