The FIFA Disciplinary Committee met this morning and confirmed the following. Australian player Harry Kewell is regarded as having breached art. 48 par. 1 a) of the FIFA Disciplinary Code (FDC) by denying the opposite team a clear goal-scoring opportunity in the match between Ghana and Australia on 19 June 2010.
Harry Kewell is therefore suspended for one (1) match. The suspension shall be served in the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa match between Australia and Serbia on 23 June 2010.
