President Joao Havelange of FIFA, soccer's world sanctioning body, said he expects South Africa to be readmitted for international play July 2, after a 28-year ban.

South Africa was suspended by FIFA in 1964 and expelled in 1976.

If reinstated, however, South Africa will not be able to participate in the 1994 World Cup.
