FIFA investigating Uruguay FA and players over misconduct in Ghana game



Because of their behaviour at the conclusion of their final World Cup group match against Ghana, Fifa has started disciplinary proceedings against the Uruguayan football association and four players.

Uruguay defeated Ghana 2-0 but missed qualification to the last 16 on goals scored, placing third in Group H behind South Korea.

At the end of the game, the Uruguayan players became enraged when the referee failed to give a penalty for a collision between Darwin Nunez and Daniel Amartey.

They confronted him and appeared to be assaulting his assistant.

For violating Fifa’s disciplinary policy on offensive behaviour and misbehaviour, Jose Maria Gimenez, Edinson Cavani, Fernando Muslera, and Diego Godin could all face sanctions.

The Uruguayan FA will be held accountable for the same code violations and one involving prejudice.
