One-match ban for Suarez

03 July 2010 07:31

Luis Suarez will only be banned for one match for his hand-ball against Ghana - meaning the striker will be eligible for the World Cup final if Uruguay beat Holland.

FIFA confirmed that their disciplinary committee had looked at the case and decided against imposing any further punishment beyond the minimum one-match ban.

Suarez was given a straight red card for saving a goalbound-header on the line in extra-time, Ghana missed the resulting penalty and Uruguay went through to the semi-final after winning a shoot-out.
