I meant the national teams. As far as the leagues, they could kick them out of the Club World Cup (big whoop). I'm not sure what else, as UEFA is the one that directly sanctions them. They would bear the brunt of FIFA's ire so it would depend how resolute their leadership is. Basically FIFA would have to resort to punishing the confederation somehow if they didn't enforce something against the clubs. I'm just talking out of my ass here though, would have to research what the experts say about it, lol.

Ok. As much as I love how they work regulation and Champions League, it is bloody confusing with who governs who as well.

So, they could go after UEFA, but if UEFA opens their tourney to the rest of the world, they probably won't care much anyways. How are they on the Corruption scale?

UEFA are certainly no saints, but then there's probably no saints at all in the business of sports, but they would be more on the level of the NFL than the bat shit crazy obvious corruption of FIFA. At least they care about some semblance of integrity.
