Four Uruguay players has been suspended by FIFA
Following their altercation with the referee at the conclusion of their World Cup match against Ghana last month, four Uruguayan players have been suspended. While Diego Godin and Edinson Cavani were each given a one-game suspension, Fernando Muslera and Jose Maria Gimenez were each given four-match suspensions.
The Uruguayan players were upset that they did not receive a penalty. They defeated their opponent 2-0 on December 2 but were eliminated from the World Cup based on goals scored.

Instead, South Korea advanced after defeating Portugal 2-1 and scoring one more goal than Uruguay. The four Uruguayan players will also be required to perform community service relating to football and pay fines that could total up to 20,000 Swiss francs (£17,500).
The Uruguayan Football Association was also fined 50,000 Swiss francs (£44,000) for the behaviour of supporters and team members, Fifa said, while Uruguay will have to partially close their stadium for their next international match as hosts.
