Edinson Cavani gets two match ban



The South American Football Confederation has punished the Paris Saint-Germain striker, who is now set to miss important World Cup qualification matches.

Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani has been hit with a two-match ban for his sending off against Chile in the Copa America, while head coach Oscar Tabarez has been suspended for three games.


Cavani was sent off for raising a hand to Gonzalo Jara during a heated quarter-final tie last month, after the Chile defender poked the Paris Saint-Germain star in the backside.

Tabarez, meanwhile, was sent to the stands after disputing a red card for defender Jorge Fucile in the same fixture, which Uruguay lost 1-0.

The Uruguayan Football Association has now confirmed Cavani will miss qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup against Bolivia and Colombia in October, while The South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) has handed out a three-match ban to Tabarez for his indiscretion.

It marks a further blow for Uruguay, who remain without Luis Suarez as he continues to serve a competitive international ban for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup last year.
