French Guiana is under the microscope of disciplinary officials and may have to forfeit their Gold Cup match against Honduras after former French star Florent Malouda played Tuesday despite being ruled ineligible.

Honduras and French Guiana finished in a goalless draw in their second match at the 2017 Gold Cup on Tuesday night in Houston.

It's likely a formality at this point that the result will be changed to a forfeit for French Guiana because of Malouda's participation and given as a 3-0 victory to Honduras.


Honduras dominated proceedings but failed to find an end product, with French Guiana goalkeeper Donovan Leon coming up with save after save and Jorge Luis Pinto's team wasting great chances to open up the scoring.

"The rules say he's ineligible", Sport Illustrated quoted a Concacaf spokesman as saying. More precisely, he is not eligible to play.

The former Chelsea and Olympique Lyon player, who did not play in last year's qualifying matches for the Gold Cup, was born in French Guiana and made his debut for them at the Caribbean Cup last month.

Malouda was born in French Guiana, but he spent his entire worldwide career with France. "He can play, but he's not eligible".
