Levadia to Be Booted From Cup Despite 5-0 Win ({{commentsTotal}})


Estonian football champion FC Levadia is expected to be ejected from the Estonian Cup despite beating third-tier team Saue JK Laagri 5-0 on Tuesday, as the footballing giant used an unregistered player.

Magnus Vainumäe, not registered to play for Levadia, was substituted into the game after half-time. Levadia was leading 3-0 at that point.

Mihkel Uiboleht, a spokesman for the Football Federation, said Vainumäe was registered to play for Levadia III, a reserve team for the champions, not for FC Levadia itself.

Nõmme Kalju, second in the league at the end of last season, had a 1-0 win at the beginning of the current season overturned for using a banned player. Andre Järva received a red card in the last game of the 2013 season, meaning he was ineligible for the first game of the new season, but was still substituted into the game against FC Infonet, on the 90th minute.
