One-match bans for Papastathopoulos, Szczesny

I have a say

Posted Monday, June 11, 2012 by YAHOO Sport

Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Poland goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who were both sent off in the opening Euro 2012 match have been suspended for one match, UEFA said on Monday.

Papastathopoulos was sent off after receiving two yellow cards in Friday's Group A match, which finished 1-1, while Szczesny got a straight red.

UEFA said that the one-match suspension was in line with the rules, which can be applied unless there are other aggravating disciplinary factors.

No aggravating factors were reported in the dismissals. Papastathopoulos will be available for Greece's final group match against Russia and Szczesny for Poland's game with the Czech Republic, both on June 16.
