JAKARTA - Indonesia evaded sanctions from world football regulator FIFA on Friday, the nation's federation said, and was given an extension to resolve a row that has thrown Indonesian soccer into crisis.

FIFA had given the Indonesian Football Association (PSSI) a December 10 deadline to reconcile its differences with rival Indonesian Soccer Rescue Committee (KPSI) that runs a rebel league.

"FIFA did not sanction Indonesia and we were asked to solve our problem as soon as possible," PSSI head Djohar Arifin told AFP.
