Four Uruguayan players have been suspended by Fifa following World Cup incidents

Fifa has suspended four Uruguayan players for World Cup-related behavior

Following their altercation with the referee at the conclusion of their World Cup match against Ghana last month, four Uruguay players have been suspended.

In contrast to Diego Godin and Edinson Cavani, who were each given a one-game suspension, Fernando Muslera and Jose Maria Gimenez were given four-match bans.

The lack of a penalty award had incensed the Uruguayan players.

They defeated their opponent 2-0 on December 2 but were eliminated from the World Cup due to goals scored.

Instead, South Korea advanced because they outscored Uruguay by one goal and defeated Portugal 2-1.

The four Uruguayan players will also be required to perform community service related to football and pay fines that could total up to 20,000 Swiss francs (£17,500).

According to Fifa, the Uruguayan Football Association was also fined 50,000 Swiss francs (£44,000) for the actions of fans and players, and Uruguay will have to partially close its stadium when it hosts the next international game.
