    Italian Paulo Di Canio could be expelled from soccer for his fascist salute during a match last weekend, FIFA president Sepp Blatter said Friday, renouncing any form of discrimination in the game.

    "We now have this item in our files," Blatter told reporters in Tokyo, where he's attending the Club World Championship. "We have to be very tough against all discrimination."

    In Italy on Sunday, Lazio forward Di Canio appeared to give a fascist salute to fans during a 2-1 loss at Livorno.
