The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) has rectified a distorted map on its website, representing Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic of Azerbaijan as the territory of Turkey, the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) said.

TFF said the mistake was corrected after its authorized officials sent a request to Nyon for rectification.

According to TFF, it is solely the fault of UEFA to show Nakhchivan as the territory of Turkey.

Now the map on the official website of UEFA shows Nakhchivan as the territory of Azerbaijan.
