They said goodbye to the World Cup, but their story did not end on the pitch. FIFA announced on Monday the opening of disciplinary proceedings against the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) and four Celeste players (José Giménez, Edinson Cavani, Fernando Muslera, Diego Godín) for the incidents at the end of the match against Ghana that led to the Elimination of Uruguay from the World Cup.
Last Friday, Uruguay beat Ghana 2-0 but that victory did not prevent their goodbye to the tournament in the group stage, after that third and last date.
At the end of the match, several players staged angry protests against those responsible for arbitration, accompanied by various incidents, which now motivate this measure by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee, thus opening the door to eventual sanctions.
“The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has opened files against the Uruguayan Football Association for potential violations of articles 11 (offensive behavior and violations of the principles of fair play), 12 (misconduct of players and managers) and 13 (discrimination). of the FIFA Disciplinary Code in relation to incidents during the match between Ghana and Uruguay at the FIFA World Cup, which took place on December 2”, FIFA explained in a brief statement.
“Separate files were opened against the Uruguayan players José María Giménez, Edinson Cavani, Fernando Muslera and Diego Godín for potential violations of articles 11 and 12 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code in relation to the incidents that occurred at the end of said match.”sentenced the highest entity of world football.
