Wayne Rooney Banned From Euro 12

Wayne Rooney was suspended three matches by UEFA today.  The ban, which comes off an incident against Montenegro in which Rooney kicked Miodrag Dzudovic and was shown a straight red, means Rooney will miss the entire group stage of next summers Euro 12 tournament.

 

UEFA’s disciplinary code specifies ‘the suspension for three competition matches or for a specified period for assaulting another player or person present at the match,’ and can go up to a five-match ban for serious assaults.  The British FA had petitioned for leniency in the case but it was not received.
