The Argentina Football Association has been warned by Fifa that plans to rename their domestic league may breach rules on political involvement in football.

They plan to rename their top flight the Crucero General Belgrano First Division, after the cruiser which sank during the Falklands War.

Fifa have now written to the Argentina FA for clarification.

The General Belgrano was sunk by a Royal Navy submarine with the loss of 323 Argentine lives in 1982.
