Polish football could face action after the government suspended the board of the national football association.

A new commissioner was appointed in the wake of a match-fixing scandal, contravening Uefa and Fifa rules against political interference.

The Polish national team ultimately could be thrown out of qualifying for Euro 2008 as a result.

"In the coming days and weeks, we will determine what action to take," said a statement issued by both organisations.

In the past Fifa has suspended teams over political interference.

Poland are in qualifying Group A, alongside Portugal, Serbia, Belgium, Finland, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan.
