Coach of Denmark sanctioned

Kenneth Heiner-Moller, head coach of Denmark, has been suspended today by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee for unsporting behaviour towards a match official at the end of the game China vs. Denmark played on 12 September in Wuhan.

The suspension amounts to four matches but, in application of Art. 33 par. 4 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code, the FIFA Disciplinary Committee decided to suspend partially the sanction and fix a probationary period of six months.

Consequently, the coach will have to serve two matches suspension, including today's game Denmark vs New Zealand (Wuhan, 17:00 local time).
