Pepe banned for one match by FIFA

Portuguese goalkeeper Beto insists his side must improve when they face the USA in the FIFA World Cup on Sunday.

Portugal defender Pepe has received a one-match suspension after picking up a red card in the 4-0 loss to Germany.

The 31-year-old was sent off for a confrontation with Thomas Muller that saw him headbutt the forward while he was on the ground.

As a result, the Real Madrid player will sit out Sunday's Group G clash against United States -- a game Portugal need to secure a result from. The defender will, however, return for the final group game against Ghana.

As well as the ban, FIFA has also fined Pepe 9,860 pounds.

Elsewhere, world football's governing body has also given Uruguay defender Maxi Pereira a one-match suspension.

Pereira will miss Tuesday's game against England after kicking out at Joel Campbell during the 3-1 loss to Costa Rica on Saturday.
