Chamot and Santiago miss quarter-finals

FIFA has announced that Argentina's Jose Chamot and Denia Santiago of Spain will both miss the direct clash between their two teams in the quarter-final of the men's Olympic Football Tournament in Birmingham on Saturday.

Both players received their second yellow card in first-round group matches on Wednesday. Two yellow cards in two matches brings an automatic one-match suspension.

Other players in a similar situation after Wednesday's matches belong to teams which have been eliminated from the 1996 Olympics. According to FIFA regulations, no further disciplinary measures will be taken against such players.
